The vast majority of rotationally moulded articles are produced nowadays from powdered plastics. However, the moulding process developed originally from the use of liquid plastics and there is currently a renewed interest in such systems because of some unique advantages which they offer. Unfortunately, these advantages tend to be offset by the practical difficulties encountered in rotationally moulding reactive liquid systems. This paper discusses the rotational moulding behaviour of liquid Nyrim, a nylon block copolymer, and assesses the potential of some process/material modifications to improve the mouldability of this material.
