Thermoforming or Rotomolding?

Rotomolding and thermoforming both offer advantages, depending on the type of project at hand.


The key advantages of thermoforming include:


  • Sharp detail
  • Tight tolerances
  • Flexible tooling and engineering
  • Efficient set-up

Rotational molding offers:

  • The ability to mold multi-piece parts as one unit
  • Consistent wall thickness
  • Strong outside corners

A well-trained, experienced plastics engineer can help you determine whether thermoforming or rotomolding is right for your project.

Mayfield’s engineering support staff has the knowledge and expertise to help with these and other considerations, including:

  • Material selection
  • Improving geometries
  • Concept development
