A major advantage of rotamoulding is the low tooling cost compare to plastic injection mold, and die casting, is you are looking for China Plastic Mold Company, you can contact us.
Since the heating and fusing of resin inside a slowly rotating closed mould does not require high pressure, moulds, therefore, need not be as costly or complex as those tooled for other processes. Depending on requirements, moulds can be made from several materials:
Cast aluminium alloy: the popular choice, with good heat transfer and excellent mould definition. It is best for small to medium sized mouldings.
Sheet mild steel: for fabricating moulds for large mouldings.
Cast beryllium copper: for quality moulds producing very detailed surface finishes.
Electroformed copper nickel: suitable for undercuts and the highest surface reproduction and finish.
90% of rotational mouldings are made of polyethylene (PE), a polymer with immense versatility ranging from food grade to vandal-resistant and flame retardant grades for handling waste materials, fuels and corrosive substances.
Cross-linkable PE has been developed with superior resistance to chemicals and environmental stress cracking suitable for the production of canoes, chemical plant and high performance containers.
In addition to polyvinyl chloride, EVA, polyester elastomers and certain rubbers for moulding flexible and inflatable products, engineering polymers have also been developed including polypropylene, nylon, polycarbonate, and polyurethane.
Some thermosets have been introduced too. However, the flow characteristics of the resin are all important for successful processing, hence the ubiquity of polyethylene. if plastic molding parts made in polyethylene, it is PP injection molding, need this service? Contact us.
These materials and technological advances, combined with well designed surface finishes and graphics, are leading to the rotamoulding process away from traditional solutions into new areas of product application.
