Converting from Metal, Fiberglass, and Other Materials
We can help you redesign for better quality, functionality, durability, shorter lead times, you name It.
Convert to Rotomold or Thermoforming
We’re Happy to Help You Discern What’s Best
Did you know parts currently made using materials like fiberglass, steel, and wood can oftentimes be rotomolded? Or thermoformed? Here’s the problem: if you go to a rotomolder, you won’t know if your part should be thermoformed. And vice versa. But, if you come to Myers, where we offer both methods, we will help you discern the best possible manufacturing process to fit your specific product, budget, and market demands.
A Few Examples of Our Conversion Efforts
- Fiberglass to Rotationally Molded LLDPE. Rotomolded products can resemble fiberglass with solid color and surface finish. We’ve helped customers in the marine industry reduce costs and increase efficiency by transitioning from fiberglass to plastic.
- Metal to Plastic Diesel Fuel Tanks. Unlike metal, rotomolded fuel tanks do not rust and can be designed to maximize space.
- Stainless Steel to Plastic IBCs. Stainless steel IBCs are expensive. Rotomolded polyethylene construction costs less, has no welds to leak, involves shorter production lead times, and produces higher-quality tanks.
- Stainless Steel to Plastic Canopy. A customer brought us a heavy, boxy, steel powder-coated canopy. Servicing the equipment under the canopy was challenging, with few small access panels available. When converted to rotomolding, the canopy is lighter and rust-free; it has a modern shape with color throughout and hinges up and out of the way for equipment servicing.
