Manufacturing Large-Scale Plastic Products with Rotational Molding

Plastic rotomolded products have been around for over 60 years, and these products have successfully replaced traditionally metal products in the automobile and aerospace industries.

Yet, many owners of industries and manufacturing companies aren’t familiar with the benefits of using rotational molded plastic and they simply continue to use the metal fabricated parts that have been around for generations.

If your industry produces large-scale commercial and industrial products, such as large industrial water tanks, you should consider the benefits of plastic rotomolded parts made of polyethylene. Manufacturers who replace their old metal fabricated parts with these plastic products — which can measure up to 17 feet long and weigh up to 500 pounds — will quickly discover the benefits.

Benefits of Custom Rotational Molding

Replacing metal parts with custom rotational molding parts can provide many benefits, including:

  • Easy Cleanup: Cleaning these large-scale products made from polyethylene is a breeze because all you need is soap and water. Harsh products and chemicals are necessary to clean metal products but aren’t necessary with our products made of polyethylene.
  • Environmentally Friendly: It is vital in today’s world for manufacturers and industries to be as environmentally friendly as possible. The massive structures that we create are built with polyethylene plastic, which is more environmentally friendly than other materials.
  • Impact Resistant: Polyethylene is such a tough material that it is impact resistant, unlike metal which can easily dent or bend. That’s why it is a wise choice for large-scale projects, such as boats and large containers.
  • Corrosion Resistant: Rust is often a problem with metal fabricated parts, particularly when they are exposed to the environment. Products made from polyethylene are corrosion resistant, therefore you don’t have to worry about chemical reactions and oxidation causing damage to the pieces. This corrosion resistant feature makes it an excellent choice for large structures.

When your industry is in need of large-scale commercial and industrial products, consider switching to products made of polyethylene. The versatility that comes with an eco-friendly material that is long-lasting, impact and corrosion resistant, and easy to maintain and clean makes it an excellent value for your business.
