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