Bottles

RPC Astrapak offers a variety of market tested manufacturing process for automotive packaging. Manufacturing processes are selected according to design, cost, manufacturing speed and volume considerations. Extrusion Blow Moulding is the process used to manufacture automotive containers. Injection Blow Moulding is used for the production of hollow plastic containers in large quantities. These are typically bottles and jars with unusual designs, while Injection Stretch Blow Moulding involves using an injection moulded preform, which already carries the neck of the bottles, including threads, on one end. ISBM is used to manufacture products where strength and clarity are a prerequisite.
