In the plastic container industry, quality and precision are crucial. At Plastimex, we are aware of the importance of every detail in the manufacturing of our containers. This time, we will explore an essential element in our production process: plastic preforms. What exactly are they, and what is their role in creating high-quality containers? Find out here!
What are plastic preforms?
Preforms are the “primary” form used to manufacture a plastic container. They go through a softening process to be placed into a mold that has the final shape of the product, and then air is introduced under pressure. The thread measurement, weight, and color of the preform are characteristics that the bottles produced using this technique will have.
These preforms are cylindrical structures, typically made from plastic resins such as PET (polyethylene terephthalate), and they resemble long, thin tubes with a threaded neck at the top. The design and quality of plastic preforms are critical to ensuring the integrity of the final product.
What are performs used for?
Here are some of the most important functions of plastic preforms:
- Easy Customization: Preforms are designed to contain a specific amount of resin, allowing for precise manufacturing. Additionally, the preform’s neck can be tailored to fit different types of caps, enabling customization according to customer needs.
- Space Optimization: Preforms are much more compact and easier to store compared to full containers, saving space in warehouses and during transportation.
- Production Efficiency: Using preforms instead of complete containers enables a more efficient production process.
