Rota Molding involves a heated hollow mold which is filled with material. It is then slowly rotated causing the softened material to disperse and stick to the walls of the mold. In order to maintain even thickness throughout, the mold continues to rotate at all times to avoid sagging or deformation.

Rota molding is used to make all kinds of things from oil tanks and bottle banks to canoes and containers.
