Rotational moulding, known also as rotomoulding or rotocasting, is a process for manufacturing hollow plastic products. For certain types of liquid vinyls, the term slush molding is also used. Rotational moulding has particular advantages in terms of relatively low levels of residual stresses and inexpensive molds. Rotational moulding also has few competitors for the production of large (> 2 m3) hollow objects in one piece. Rotational moulding is best known for the manufacture of tanks but it can also be used to make complex medical products, toys, leisure craft, and highly aesthetic point-of-sale products.

Design & Construction
Rotational Moulding makes a huge range of products possible. With good design and quality construction, parts are fit for purpose, aesthetically pleasing and made to last!
The most popular material used in rotomoulding, polyethylene is a highly recyclable plastic that is commonly ground up and used in new products at the end of its life. If you are interested in rotomoulding in the environment, click here to find out more.
