Learn everything you need to know about how a plastic company works.
How are containers in a plastic corporation made?
Plastic containers can be made through four different techniques: injection molding, injection-blow molding, extrusion, and extrusion-blow molding. The first technique is for materials such as synthetic resins that are subjected to very high temperatures and melted to inject into a mold to create the desired shape. With this technique, containers can be manufactured continuously and quickly.
The injection-blow technique is used for the manufacture of large quantities of hollow plastic parts. In this process, the polymer is injected into an initial preform. Subsequently, the preform is placed in a blow molding station to be inflated and finally cooled. In the case of the extrusion technique, it is an industrial process that is used to melt and mold plastic at a constant flow of pressure and force, to obtain the desired shape of the container.
Finally, the extrusion-blow technique is a manufacturing process where polymers are melted and extruded into a hollow tube, known as a parison. It is then closed in a cold metal mold, where the air is blown to form the part and eject it.
We are a sustainable plastic company
One of our main objectives as a company is to find a balance with the environment to reduce the negative consequences that our processes can cause to the environment. For this reason, we implement sustainable actions such as the use of solar energy for our operation, the collection of rainwater for its correct use, and the treatment of residual water to irrigate gardens and green areas. Finally, our containers are made with 100% recyclable material.
