New Talisman – four-year success story coating of dishwasher baskets

Keywords: Thermoplastics, Coatings

After extensive and exhaustive development and testing. New Talisman has proved that it can perform successfully on dishwasher baskets in a commercial environment.

After 4 years in a demanding market place a leading Asian dishwasher manufacturer has announced that New Talisman has “exceeded expectations” in both operation and cost.

New Talisman is a thermoplastic coating that has been specifically developed by Plascoat to provide outstanding performance in the field of dishwasher baskets, freezer shelves and glass-washer baskets. It provides protection for the metal in such environments and meets the performance at lower cost to traditional alternatives.

In addition to a significant cost advantage over nylons, New Talisman also shows some distinct performance benefits. These have been demonstrated in extensive field and laboratory tests – both at Plascoat and at appliance manufacturers themselves.

For instance, after 4 months at 130°C, New Talisman showed no signs of degradation or discolouration, whilst its nylon equivalent yellowed after just 72 h. In salt-spray tests after 500 h on deliberately damaged plates, New Talisman showed only a few millimetres loss of adhesion, whilst the nylon coating's adhesion had been completely lost.

The development and commercial use of New Talisman re-affirms Plascoat's position as a key thermoplastic coating material supplier for the appliance market.
