Roto Moulded Plastic Water Tanks / Water Harvesting Tanks

Roto moulding is a process for manufacturing hollow plastic products. Rotational molding has particular advantages in terms of relatively low levels of residual stresses and inexpensive moulds.

Polydrum expanded their product basket with the installation of a roto moulding plant in the Wadeville premises. It focuses on water harvesting products and currently specialises in the 1000L and 5000L Plastic Water Tanks.
