The process starts with placing the pan on the platform rotomolding. The polyethylene resin powder is placed into the mold and closes ensuring tightness, and brought to the heating stage, through an oven to melt the resin gets into contact with the hot mold coating the entire inner surface. During the heating step the mold is slowly rotated through two axes perpendicular facilitating the adaptation of the plastic resin to the internal shape of the mold.
