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.
Glass containers offer a highly sustainable solution to your packaging needs. Glass is 100% recyclable and if recycled properly it will never lose its purity or its quality no matter how many times it is reused. Glass recycling is also an efficient and effective process that can turn old glass bottles into a completely new product. This recyclability is not only important for the environment, but also for manufacturers, because it can save money and reduce emissions.
