New Talisman is a thermoplastic coating that has been specifically developed to provide outstanding performance in the field of dishwasher baskets, freezer shelves, and glass washer baskets, according to the company. It provides protection for metal in such environments and reportedly meets performance requirements at a lower cost than traditional alternatives such as nylon.
New Talisman is also said to have some distinct performance benefits that have been demonstrated in both extensive field and laboratory tests. According to the company, after going through 4 months of testing at 130°C, New Talisman showed no degrading or yellowing at all, whilst its nylon equivalent showed yellowing after just 72 hr. In-salt spray tests after 500 hr on damaged plates reportedly showed that New Talisman had lost only a few millimeters of adhesion, while the nylon's adhesion had been completely lost.
