Benefits of Plastic
Simply put, plastic cannot rust. Even stainless steel products are susceptible to rust in welded spots.
Plastic can withstand various chemical components, making it a perfect solution for tanks and other containers. Plastics can also be engineered to be static-resistant, fire-resistant and weather-resistant.
Plastic parts are extremely impact resistant and do not dent. Parts can also be reinforced with inserts in high-stress areas.
It takes less fuel to operate equipment with plastic parts because plastic is lighter weight than metal. Plastic is typically less expensive than metal. And because rotomolding easily allows for one-piece construction, assembly times – and therefore assembly costs – are reduced.
With rotomolding, a wide range of colors is available. Because the color is solid throughout the piece, there’s no unsightly chipping of color. Rotomolding also gives you the option of including a color logo right on the molded piece, which means your logo cannot peel or flake away. And because rotomolding allows greater control over the design, you can address the style of the part along with its function.
Rotomolding plastic eliminates sharp corners and burrs and results in a smooth, seamless product. This reduces injury risks for operators. And because rotomolding allows more control over the design, more ergonomic parts can be created.
It’s a known fact that the more components there are in a part, the greater the risk for breakdowns and problems. Using plastic means you can form one part rather than welding together various metal pieces, resulting in greater durability and a longer-lasting product.
