Rotomoulding in Marine & Watercraft

The marine environment is extremely harsh. The combination of salt water, wind and heavy pounding by 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 and even then wood needs constant treating, 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. 
Resistance to corrosion, impact resistance, natural buoyancy, seamless end product, complex shape capabilities and even the ability to integrate internal metal frameworks. 
This means that boat builders, naval architects and after market producers are increasingly utilising rotomoulding for a vast range of devices and parts in a wide range of situational uses, ships, boats, oil rigs and even green energy.
A perfect example of the benefits of rotomoulding in this industry would be the large deep sea buoys that were traditionally manufactured from steel. They have mostly been replaced with high high-performance rotomoulded versions greatly reducing manufacturing cost, speed, maintenance requirements and overall longevity.
