Although rotational molding (commonly known as rotomolding) still represents a small fraction of the plastics industry, in recent years its many advantages have attracted increased attention from designers of plastic parts. Thanks to increased awareness of its many attractive features, rotomolding has been the fastest-growing process in the industry over the past decade. Please click on the links below to learn more about some of the distinct advantages that rotomolding has to offer.

For its typical applications, the rotomolding process is simple. A premeasured amount of resin -- typically polyethylene, but polycarbonate, nylon, polypropylene, and PVC are also commonly used -- is placed into a two-part mold. The mold is closed and begins to rotate on both the horizontal and vertical axes. The rotating mold is first cycled into an oven, where the resin reaches its melting point and begins to stick to the hot inside surface of the mold cavity. Once the resin has melted completely and formed a layer throughout the mold surface, the mold cycles into a cooling chamber. Here, the plastic is cooled until it has solidified into a hollow piece and is ready for removal.
