1994: Creation of SOROCAL Sarl in Nouméa. Originally based in Numbo in a small warehouse.
2003: The company moves to the industrial zone of Ducos (economic heart of the island) where it will be established in a larger warehouse to facilitate production and storage.
SOROCAL currently employs 15 people full time.
SOROCAL specializes in rotational molding, the process of which allows the manufacture of hollow bodies by introducing micronized polymer powder into a mold, itself exposed to a heat source and rotated biaxially.
The material used is LLDPE or MDPE treated anti-UV and food in order to be able to withstand the climatic conditions of New Caledonia and to meet the standards in force.
In addition, SOROCAL also has a strong know-how in plastic boilermaking, giving it the possibility of carrying out tailor-made works for its customers. The material used is HDPE in the form of a plate with a thickness ranging from 6mm to 20mm, also anti-UV and food-grade treated.

Plastic boilermaking & rotational molding in Nouméa
Plastic boilermaking in New Caledonia
Plastic boilermaking is a trade of great flexibility, because thanks to the base material, plastic and more precisely high density polyethylene, it is possible to manufacture a large number of works, ranging from all-water tanks to small boxes. storage. Plastic boilermaking has only one limit… that of the imagination!
Starting with HDPE sheets of large dimensions and different thicknesses, the cutting and welding steps will gradually make it possible to assemble the various elements constituting a structure (eg: base, shell, roof). These different stages of production will give birth to a functional structure that meets the customer’s specifications.
SOROCAL has been equipped for several years with a range of standard structures that have proved their worth, but also proves to be the tailor-made specialist capable of meeting customer requirements.
Rotational molding in New Caledonia
Rotomolding, due to its name, characterizes the action of molding under the effect of rotation.
The basic material is medium density polyethylene in the form of a micronized powder which will be introduced in a finished quantity into a steel or cast aluminum mold with fixed dimensions. All finished products will be closed or open hollow type.
This mold is then subjected to high temperatures for a given time and also to two axes of rotation ensuring a homogeneous distribution of the powder over all of the internal walls of the mold.
Under the combined effect of heat and rotations, the plastic will melt and marry the interior shapes of the mold, this is called COOKING.
Once the cooking is complete, the mold is subjected to COOLING by air and water in order to set the shapes of the product.
The latter will be DISMOLDED by opening the mold and equipped according to its end use.
Thanks to its wide range of molds, SOROCAL has many products for sanitation, construction, agriculture and also leisure.
