What is Blow Molding?
Blow molding is the most popular, efficient, and cost-effective way to produce hollow plastic items such as bottles, plastic drums, tubs, and storage tanks. Blow molded products are used in hospitals, automobiles, sporting equipment, and even toys. In fact, you probably have several blow molded products in your home right now!
The blow molding process involves taking a flexible amount of molten thermoplastic resin (known as a "parison"), encasing it in a metal mold, and injecting a quick blast of pressurized air. The air causes the parison to expand and instantly take the shape of the mold. Once the plastic hardens, it is taken out of the mold and any excess material is removed. The end product is a durable, easily replicable, and relatively inexpensive plastic item.
