POLYETHYLENE

Benefits of rotational moulding using polyethylene include:

  • UV stabilized material
  • Excellent impact resistances
  • Low Maintenance
  • Low Cost of Installation
  • Long Lifetime
  • High Safety Record
  • Easily Processed and Recycled

PRODUCTION

Designers of plastic parts turn to rotational moulding to produce small or large parts of unusual shape that cannot be produced as one piece by another process. Due to the low tooling cost, rotational moulding is ideally suited to producing prototypes, or small or large quantity production parts.

Another cost limiting factor is the amount of material wasted in production. There are no sprues or runners (as in injection moulding), no off-cuts (thermoforming), or pinch off scrap (blow moulding). What material is wasted, through scrap or failed part testing, can usually be recycled.

LOW PRESSURE

The low processing pressure involved in rotational moulding has the added advantage of producing parts which are relatively stress free, the moulds do not have to be designed to withstand the high pressure of injection moulding so mould costs are lower. This advantage of the process is especially important when considering large, load bearing parts in applications which must provide corrosion or stress-crack resistance.
