Rotomoulding in the Health & Medical industry

Surprising to some people, perhaps more used to seeing rotomoulded products in rugged environments, the medical sector is an industry that has seen increased adoption of the rotomoulding process for the production of many devices and equipment. 
 
Understandably any products used in the highly sensitive areas of patient care or the laboratory environment need to comply with stringent requirements to ensure any contamination risk is minimised.
 
Rotomoulding has the advantages of being a seamless manufacturing process therefore eliminating joints and seams thereby reducing the areas that dangerous germs and bacteria can form.
Rotomoulding also lends itself to the manufacture of smooth, rounded surface products and the polymer material itself is chemically resistant making it easy to keep clean.
 
In addition, advances in technical manufacturing techniques and developments in raw materials and the availability of various additives enable products to be made with a range of characteristics including antibacterial and antimicrobial. 
 
Low cost of mould development also means prototypes that would normally be prohibitive to trial in this environment can easily be developed.
