A step-by-step guide to the Extrusion Blow Moulding Process
Extrusion blow moulding (EBM) is a highly versatile process that can provide unique shapes, sizes and neck types, using a variety of plastics. This versatility gives an overwhelming advantage over other
bottle manufacturing processes.
One of the most common resins used in the EBM process is HDPE (high density polyethylene). Although semi-opaque in its natural state, a high gloss feel and appearance can be achieved if required. Similarly, a more squeezable feel can be achieved using MDPE (medium density polyethylene), making it ideal for products such as creams and lotions.
