At Poly Products we manufacture a wide range of products for use in a variety of applications spread across the industrial spectrum.
Rotational moulding, also known as roto-moulding, is a versatile manufacturing process which in the early years of the sector, was mainly utilised to manufacture cylindrical containers and water tanks.
As the sector has developed and modernised with regards to machinery, design, materials and moulds, the process is now used to manufacture products that most people will use and come across in their everyday lives.
Here are some examples of products that can be made using rotational moulding:
Water tanks and containers: Rotational moulding is commonly used to produce water tanks, water butts, compost bins, domestic heating oil tanks, IBC’s and containers of various sizes and shapes for agricultural, industrial, and residential use.
Toys and playground equipment: The process is ideal for manufacturing toys and playground equipment, such as slides, sand pits, swings, and ride-on toys, due to its ability to produce complex shapes and designs.
Automotive parts: Rotational moulding is used to produce automotive parts, such as fuel tanks, air ducts, housings, washer bottles, mud guards and seat backs, due to its ability to produce large and complex shapes in a single piece.
Industrial containers and storage solutions: Widely used to produce industrial containers, such as storage bins, food grade containers, pallets, bottle trolleys, recycling bins and waste bins, due to its excellent durability, impact resistance, and chemical resistance.
Medical equipment and devices: Defibrillator cabinets, first aid boxes, hospital bed pans, kidney dishes, commode seats and other medical supplies, due to its ability to produce smooth, seamless surfaces that are easy to clean and sterilize.
Sporting goods and equipment: Boats, kayaks, canoes, golf carts, bike racks, helmets, and protective gear, due to its ability to produce large and complex shapes that are lightweight, durable, and impact resistant.
Road Barriers and Cones: Street and highway safety solutions such as barriers, road cones, grit salt bins and hoppers, bollards, portable toilets and signage. The process provides product durability and longevity, with many items of roto-moulded street furniture having been in use for many years, sometimes decades, out in the field.
Overall, rotational moulding offers a wide range of design possibilities and material choices, making it a popular choice for producing high-quality, durable, and complex parts and products for various industries.
