Embarking on a journey into the revolutionary world of rotational molding, this section presents a comprehensive guide to this fast-growing plastics processing method, as outlined in the document “A Guide to Rotational Molding” from LyondellBasell.
Also known as rotomolding or rotational casting, rotational molding stands out as one of the fastest-growing plastics processing methods today. Utilizing Microthene polyolefin powders from LyondellBasell, rotational molding techniques can create hollow items of any size, open or closed, and in any desired shape.
In recent years, advancements in rotomolding techniques have allowed this process to compete with or even outperform blow molding, injection molding, and thermoforming. It has become a go-to method, especially for fabricating pieces that are virtually impossible to produce using other processes.
Although rotational molding was first developed in the early 20th century, its widespread acceptance came in the early 1960s when LyondellBasell replaced vinyl plastisol resins with polyolefin resins.
