Benefits of Plastic
Plastic technology has advanced dramatically in the past few decades resulting in numerous benefits.
Plastic cannot rust. Even stainless steel products are susceptible to rust in welded spots while plastic remains rust-free.
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.
Less fuel is required to operate equipment with plastic parts as plastic is a much lighter material than metal. Additionally, plastic is typically less expensive to purchase and the rotomolding process easily allows for one-piece construction so assembly times - and therefore assembly costs - are reduced.
Rotomolding has the advantage of offering a wide range of colors that are solid throughout the piece so there is no unsightly chipping. This process also allows you the option of including a color logo right in the molded piece meaning your logo cannot peel or flake away. Also, rotomolding allows for greater control over the design so you can easily address the style of the part along with its function.
Sharp corners and burrs are eliminated with this process and a smooth, seamless product is the end result. Injury risks for operators are greatly reduced 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 continuous part rather than welding together various metal pieces, resulting in greater durability and a longer-lasting product created in a shorter time frame.
