Plastisol/PVC Dip Coated Wireform for the Automotive Industry

Customers of Kathom Manufacturing Company Inc. often take advantage of our in-depth knowledge of materials science and dip molding technology to help them solve problems. A good customer in the automotive industry approached us to help find a solution for the premature aging of a wireform used to secure the back seat of a car in place. The coating on the components from their existing supplier was splitting and exposing the metal, which resulted in an irritating squeaking sound. Although they found that wrapping the parts in hockey tape provided a temporary fix, it was certainly not a long-term solution.

Our materials experts examined the customer drawing, analyzed the part’s function within the assembly schematic, and formulated a custom plastisol compound that was harder, stronger, and much more durable. Able to deliver a high performance, long-wearing solution, we now manufacture these parts an ongoing basis.
