All About Sports Water Bottles Blow Molding

Sports water bottles are great for everyday use: besides ensuring individuals stay hydrated throughout the day, they also eliminate the need for disposable, single-use bottles which are known for polluting the oceans. From a business point of view, companies all over the world continue to purchase Sports Water Bottle Extrusion Blow Molding Machines in order to produce these useful items which -through their durability and a trendy and captivating design- are capable of helping businesses increase their sales and revenues while also satisfying the needs of their market. After all, individuals tend to prefer and choose these reusable bottles for all the benefits they can offer, such as a variety of designs, and for being affordable and lightweight.

How is a sports water bottle made by Extrusion Blow Molding?

Sports water bottles are made through Extrusion Blow Molding, a process that consists of melting down a plastic resin and forming a hollow tube known as a parison. The parison is later clamped into a metal mold where the air is blown into it and pushes the plastic out to match the shape of the mold. Once the plastic has cooled and hardened, the mold opens up and the part is ejected.

Due to the size of this kind of bottle, Continuous Extrusion Blow Molding Machines are generally suitable for production. Generally speaking, these small-sized machines are very well known for their versatility, as they can produce a wide variety of plastic products ranging from plastic milk bottles and pharmaceutical bottles and containers to detergent bottles and more.

What plastics are used for sports water bottles blow molding?

Extrusion Blow Molding is a common blow molding technology used to process many different plastics. In the case of sports water bottles, plastic resins can allow these bottles to be lightweight, low cost, convenient to transport, durable, and also other benefits such as having good sealing and ease for printing.
  • LDPE

    : One of the most commonly used plastics for squeeze bottles is Low-Density Polyethylene or LDPE. Besides being considered a safer choice than some other types of plastics by the Environmental Protection Agency, LDPE is well known for being clear or translucent, soft, flexible, and safe. LDPE sports bottles are therefore characterized by their pliability, which makes it easy for liquids to be dispensed or squeezed out. These properties make this material very popular and a great option for producing durable bottles which are impact-resistant due to their lower density and the nature of their molecules.

  • Other plastics

    : Besides LDPE, other blow molding plastics such as HDPE and PP may be used, depending on the end product’s intended purpose.
