General Tips & FAQ

  • To prevent the handles from burning, please keep the handles inside the bag
 

*Plastisol is a suspension of PVC particles in a plasticizer; it flows as a liquid and can be poured into a heated mold. When heated to around 177°Celsius, the plastic and plasticizer mutually dissolve each other. On cooling the mold below 60°C, a flexible, permanently plasticized product will result.
