What is Injection Blow Molding (IBM)? IBM is a common manufacturing process, great for small containers, packages with threaded necks or wide mouth openings, or for highly styled shapes. PP (Polypropylene), HDPE (High Density Polyethylene), LDPE (Low Density Polyethylene), and PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride) are some common plastics used in IBM.
Extrusion Blow Molding (EBM) is a common blow molding technology used with many different types of plastics, including, but not limited to, PP (Polypropylene), HDPE (High Density Polyethylene), PETG (Polyethylene Terephthalate Glycol) and PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride). It’s commonly used for containers requiring special barriers to oxygen and moisture to improve stability.
