Picto 2 Soufflage

You wish to have large hollow plastic parts made in small series or prototypes ?

The extrusion blow molding process is probably the most suitable. Widely used for bottling, this process is three times faster than rotational molding and allows to obtain hollow parts in PP or PE whose shape corresponds to the impression of a mold.

Blow molding is commonly used to make many everyday objects: packaging bottles, watering cans, tanks, etc.

A wide range of finishes

In blow molding, the external appearance of the parts depends on the surface of the mold. On the other hand, the inside of the parts is always smooth, due to the plating of the material under the effect of the pressure.

A choice of materials available according to your needs

Our R&D team will advise you on the choice of materials available for extrusion blow moulding:

  • HDPE: the most common, for all applications
  • LDPE and EVA : for flexible parts
  • PP : for appearance parts
  • PETG : for transparency

Our expertise in blow molding

How does it work ?

The extrusion blow molding process consists of 5 steps:

  1. Introduction of plastic granules and extrusion of a tube called "parison"
  2. Closing of the mold around the parison which becomes a hermetic hollow body
  3. Blowing of the parison: the material sticks to the walls of the mold to take its shape
  4. Deflating and opening the mold
  5. Finishing operations (Cutting, deburring, flaming, drilling, assembling)

Reserved for hollow rooms

  • Freedom of shape
  • Extremely large size range
  • Small to medium series

Control of thicknesses and dimensional tolerances

  • More delicate than injection molding, the control of thicknesses is very satisfactory, thanks to simulation tools
  • Thickness and tolerances are much better controlled than in rotomolding

Attractive production times

Make your parts faster and with higher quantities than in rotational molding because the production rates are 10 times higher in blowing than in rotational molding.
