Rotational Molding

What is Rotomolding or Rotational Molding?

Rotational Molding is one of many plastics manufacturing processes producing extremely durable parts and components with a very long usable lifespan. Rotational Molding, also known as rotomolding or rotocasting is a thermoplastic process for producing parts that was developed in the 20th century, gaining much industrial traction in the 1960's. It has began growing immensely in popularity and functionality, thus growing in a larger demand in some industries in comparison to other plastics processes such as plastic injection molding, thermoforming or blow molding in some aspects. The rotational molding process is preferred over many other plastics manufacturing processes because of it's ability to manufacture durable, complex hollow products, which are virtually impossible to manufacture using the other processes.

The Rotational Molding process provides a number of advantages including cost effectiveness, quality finishing, little to no size limitations and the fact that it is considered eco-friendly in many aspects due to its ability to recycle and re-use materials easily and readily.
