7 Advantages of Plastic Rotomolding

Rotational molding offers many advantages over the other molding techniques. With rotomolding, the mold is rotated to evenly distribute the plastic throughout the interior of the mold. In general, you’ll find that rotomolding produces parts with greater uniformity, more strength and superior durability than other traditional fabrication methods. Here are the 7 advantages of plastic rotomolding.   1. Size The rotomolding process can make BIG products. At Dutchland, we can produce custom plastic products up to 500 pounds and up to 17 feet long. 2. Design With other plastic manufacturing processes, complex shapes and angles are difficult to produce.

Replacing Metal Parts with Rotomolded Plastics

The concept of replacing metal parts with plastics has been around for years, yet many businesses are only now learning about the benefits of using rotational molded plastic components over metal fabrication. By replacing metal parts, that are conducive to wear-and-tear, with rotational molded plastics you will notice certain benefits immediately. Benefits of Metal-to-Plastic Conversion The benefits of producing metal components with rotationally molded plastics include: The plastic parts do not rust, and they are corrosion-resistant. Rotomolded plastics stand up against environmental factors such as wind or moisture better than some metals. In fact, they typically last six times longer than the standard metal components. Rotomolded plastics are a wise option when varying wall thicknesses are necessary in your components. […]
