We pride ourselves on being able to change your concept into a production reality.
Cost-effective road safety portfolio
Our road safety portfolio is very strong, providing temporary solutions to any road works project that is of excellent quality and extremely cost-effective. Our range of plastic products is largely customizable and can be either purchased or hired from our factory in South Africa.
Over the course of 35 years, we have produced a large portfolio of products reaching a variety of industries. Trusting in our renowned quality and good business practice, many clients approach us to manufacture unique tools for their products. Below is a selection of products which we produce in-house and which are available to the public.
A hot mould / mandrill is dipped into a tank of plastisol.
The heat from the mould attracts the liquid vinyl and forms the part. The thickness of the part will depend on dwell time and mould temperature. The mould is then extracted and passed through an oven to cure the coating. Thereafter it is cooled and then stripped off the mould / mandrill.
Why DIP moulding?
The fundamental advantages using Dip moulding and coating:
- Low tooling costs and quick lead times
- More vibrant colours
- Quick and inexpensive prototypes
- Various textures: smooth, rough, foamed ad multi-colour dipped
- Our dip moulding portfolio covers the medical, safety, industrial and trucking industries
Every plastic moulding company has a responsibility to improve their carbon footprint. As part of Contact Plastic’s commitment to sustainable development, we do not dump any waste plastic.
All plastic waste is recycled and used in other products.
Furthermore, products manufactured from our compression moulding plant are made of 100% recycled plastic.
Note: material reused 100%: flexible PVC, polypropylene, LLDPE, HDPE, polycarbonate.
Flow moulding and dip moulding are simple processes that make use of plastisol. Dip moulded products can also have textured or foamed surfaces.
As a national leader in this field, Contact Plastics has made great headway in flow moulding technology.
Our road cone plant is constantly pushing the boundaries of efficiency with the end result being a tougher and cheaper product that is also functional and easy on the eye.
