The use of blow molding in the industrial environment has revolutionized so that it is widely used for meeting the need of plastic ware. The main advantage which this plastic production method provides you include the quick production with high volume outputs so that the companies are able to produce a lot of containers.
Another advantage is that the machinery for this plastic production method is developed to provide three dimensional blow moldings. It supports for the automated production for seamless part with minimal flash around the objects. This improved machinery is also able to provide high production speed.
Instead of the advantages, blowing molding also has some disadvantages. Since the main material used is polymer, it can bring the environment impact. There are a lot of plastic containers which are used to hold liquid. Commonly, they have been through some different methods. The following account provides you some information about the disadvantage of the blowing method.
This method of plastic production needs multiple production methods. Those methods include the extrusion blow molding and injection blow molding. Extrusion method is basically the same as the glass glowing in which the compound is blown to create the hollow. Injection method is commonly used to produce containers in large volume. The difference of this method to the extrusion is that it injects the melted polymer into the blow mold.
Another disadvantage of this plastic production method is on the environmental issue. Since the main material used is plastic, it depends highly on the petroleum production. It is an integral component of the production of polymer. Therefore, the production will bring some risks such as diminishing the resource aspect from petroleum. Also, plastic is not biodegradable so that every plastic product we use is harmful for the earth.
Furthermore, this plastic production method will make the polymer used for creating the product become thinner. Since it focuses on creating the hollow form, it cannot control the thickness of the wall. With a large production, the polymer stretched is getting thinner.
