Convert your parts to Rotomold
If you’re currently using another manufacturing process, we will help you make the switch to rotomolding. Many of our customers were previously manufacturing their parts with fiberglass, sheet metal, wood, blow molding, and other processes. Customers often find rotomolding as a more cost-effective method offering superior quality. Learn more about converting to rotomolding.
As part of the design and engineering process, our team will recommend the best material for your use case. The most common material used for rotomolding is high-density polyethylene (HDPE) and linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE). Colors can be compounded or dry blended. Other materials frequently used include cross-linked polyethylene, nylons, and polypropylene. Learn more about material selection.
