tecni-form rotationally moulded plastic components can be used in street cleaning machinery, waste treatment systems and public lighting
Municipal equipment and street furniture
Rotational moulding is an ideal process for manufacturing municipal products such as rubbish bins and roadside furniture. Other hollow plastic items such as traffic barriers, portable toilets, salt and grit bins, and road safety equipment can be made quickly, easily, and at a low cost using rotomoulding. tecni-form have techniques for applying municipal logos and other text.
More complex plastic items can also be created with rotational moulding. Wheeled bins can be manufactured with housings for metal wheel axles; and the wheels themselves can be rotomoulded if required. Rotationally moulded plastic components can be used in street cleaning machinery, waste treatment systems and public lighting, to name just a small selection.
RM plastics for environmental products
Environmental products also make good use of rotational moulding. Paper, metal, and bottle recycling banks can all be manufactured using this process, as well as components for more complex environmental products such as solar showers and equipment for controlling oil spills.
The rotational moulding process is itself kind to the environment. There is almost no waste of raw materials during moulding; the raw materials can be made of recycled stock; and polyethylene (the commonest material) is ‘clean’ and easy to reprocess.
