How compatible are softeners and heat stabilizers between brands

Recommended Posts

So I have been having trouble getting plastisol from my usual supplier has had trouble getting plastic across the border (the standard Canadian problem) and to get me  over the hump I have to break down and get do-it plastic  I have plenty of heat stabilizer and softener but it is the alumilite version can I get away with mixing and matching brands.

I would contact Alumilite and ask them.

Or just cook up a small batch with each to see if they play well together.

Funny, I'll bring in 8-12 drums at a time several times a year and have never had an issue getting plastic across the border. Might want to find out what the actual problem is.

In that volume the shipping cost/gallon is minimal. and there would not be a problem, at personal use level  the shipping nearly doubles the cost of the resin . In general for personal use tagging onto the store order up until this order had worked great this one has just gone sideways. (the fist attempt there was some sort of  new regulatory chemical ban so the whole shipment was turned back, the next was no french labels).

A son of mine has dreams of during semi-pro :)  so eventually we will need to figure out how to get  larger volumes.  Right now we are in learning / development mode so we just need reliable and not too expensive.

I was shipping 6 gallons direct to canada for 50.00, aka Ontario... I would check with Lureworks, as they ship worldwide. I bet they can get you taken care of.

I am out west and maybe that makes a difference but One site I tested wanted the better part of 300$ for shipping for 1 5 gallon pail.

I would dial their number. The shipping bots are generally extremely inaccurate when shipping out of the country.

Heard back from one so far,  it's not cheap but reasonable.  it goes to show it pays to contact a real person sometimes.
