Extrusion blow moulding
The centre of excellence for blow moulded containers is our Madrox operation in Poland.
At Madrox we specialise in the design and manufacture of bottles, jars and canisters in a range of different shapes, sizes and materials.
In most cases we also produce the corresponding caps and closures (including CRC’s, flip top caps, dosing caps and dispensers). Madrox are particularly noted for the packs they supply into the Home Care and Personal Care market sectors, but they have a wide portfolio of customers.
A number of standard packs are available off the peg, and these can be customised through colour and/or decoration.
Product types: 125ml to 5ltr capacity, integral handles, trigger sprays, shampoo, shower gel, wide mouth jars, laundry care, automotive, dosing packs, jerry cans, toilet cleaners/bleach
Materials: HDPE, LDPE, PP
Added value options: Angled necks, visi-strips, dosing chambers, IML decoration.
Sometimes referred to as extrusion blow moulding (EBM) this process begins with plastic being melted and extruded into a hollow tube (parison).
The parison is then captured by closing it in a water cooled mould. Air is then blown into the parison inflating it so that the plastic takes on the shape of the mould.
Typical materials used: Polypropylene (PP), Polyethylene (PE), Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC), Polyethylene Terephthalate Glycol (PETG).
This versatile process allows the production of unique shapes, sizes and neck types in a variety of materials.
