Make the Switch to Plastic
AR MOULDING have a long and successful track record of helping companies switch over from their existing manufacturing method to rotomoulding
Increasingly more businesses are crossing over to plastic
Rotational and compression moulding are exceptionally flexible and cost-effective methods of creating thermoplastic products and components. Rotomouding and compression moulding have many advantages over traditional forms of manufacturing such as timber, metal, concrete and fibreglass leading to their increased adoption. Things such as rust proof, waterproof and UV stable to name just a few.
In addition, advances in materials and manufacturing methods also mean that rotomouding and compression moulding are impacting on other plastic manufacturing methods such as blow moulding, injection moulding and thermoforming. Some of those benefits include; reduced tooling and mould costs and low production run requirements.

The marine environment is extremely harsh. The combination of salt water, wind and heavy pounding by the water make very challenging conditions for any equipment used.
Metal, wood and fibreglass have long been used for maritime product construction and each material has pros and cons. These include the initial cost with only the highest grade being up to the job. Even then wood needs constant treating and metal rusts. Even marine grade stainless steel, and fibreglass can suffer from moisture increase and brittleness due to sun exposure.
Rotomoulding avoids the downsides of traditional materials and manufacturing techniques whilst also adding in some additional benefits unique to its characteristics.
With the worldwide drive to more sustainable forms of energy production, producers and large energy consumers are looking for more creative solutions to satisfy demand.
One such solution is floating photovoltaics (FPV) arrays. Solar panels are placed on a structure made of interlinked rotomoulded pontoons keeping them well above the water’s surface. The solar array systems are designed to take advantage of unused calm bodies of water such as ponds, lakes and reservoirs.
One of the greatest advantages of FPV, apart from its low impact on the environment, is the high level of solar performance from the panels due to their location in a wide open high reflection area unaffected by the shade caused by tall buildings, objects or trees.
