WHAT IS ROTO-MOLDING?

 

LifeArk components are manufactured using rotational molding:

Rotational Molding is a thermoplastic process for producing parts by placing powder or liquid resin into a hollow mold and rotating the tool bi-axially in an oven until the resin melts and coats the inside of the mold cavity. A resin powder is either dumped or blown into the cavity to create a foamed core. Next the tool is cooled and the part is removed from the mold.

Rotational Molding Advantages:

  • Design flexibility allowing complex geometry

  • Low-Tech process

  • Tooling cost are less then other plastic molding methods

  • Parts offer strength, corrosion resistance and durability

  • Short lead times on production

  • Environmentally-friendly: no chemicals or dangerous toxins are released during production

  • Less material wastage compared with manufacturing with other materials like metal or concrete
