The mold material for extrusion blow molds can be various. it can be steel, or Aluminum or copper.  as you know, steel is harder than Aluminum and copper.

But Aluminum is lighter than steel. and Aluminum gets better heat transfer ability. it is of course better as the mold material. And you know, copper also gets better heat transfer ability, and it’s harder then Aluminum.  and you know there are another material,Beryllium copper, which has the same hardness as steel, but has the best heat dissipation. So it is the best mold material. But you know, it’s too expensive, it’s price 10 times as normal mold steel.

So, the best way we take nowadays, we take stainless mold steel S136H as the mold cavity material, P20 as the material for mold body, we take Beryllium copper insert in the place where the heat is most concentrated. see this picture:


Sometimes, cutomers want best production capacity, we have to take Aluminum or Beryllium material on the whole mold. But Beryllium is too expensive, usually we tak aluminum blow mold under this situation. but aluminum material is Easily deformed by any collision. so, it is Extremely demanding on production conditions.

Features & Application

Extrusion blow mold is the mold for extrusion blow molding, extrusion blow molding only works on special machinery:

we also made this extrusion blow mold for our machine.

Extrusion Blow Molding

Extrusion Blow Molding is one of several blow molding methods to produce plastic bottles, jars, and jugs. It is a common blow molding technology

used to process many different plastics, including HDPE, PVC, PC, PP, and PETG – and very common with bottles requiring multi-layer technologies

(bottles with special oxygen / moisture barrier requirements to improve product compatibility & stability).

Steps of EBM process

Extrusion Blow Molding is the simplest type of blow molding. A hot tube of plastic material, called a parison, is dropped from an extruder

and captured in a water cooled mold. Once the molds are closed, air is injected through the top or the neck of the container; just as if one

were blowing up a balloon. When the hot plastic material is blown up and touches the walls of the mold the material “freezes” and the container

now maintains its rigid shape.Beryllium joint blow mold

For colored bottles, colorants are often fed into the extruder at a controlled rate and mixed with the resin as they are being melted.

If barrier and adhesive layers are required, they are fed separately and combined in a co-extrusion head

The Excess

When a bottle is produced using this blow molding method, excess material is created when the mold closes around the parison.

This ‘flash’ must be removed to complete a finished bottle or jar. Flash at the bottom (called the tail), the top (the moil), and for handled

ware – a “handle slug” needs to be trimmed. Typically, the flash is removed upon mold release (trimmed in mold). For bottle with handles

(handleware), offset neck and special circumstances, the flash is extracted via a secondary operation downstream.

The short video below depicts an EBM process for a wide mouth bottle being produced with it’s flash trimmed downstream.

Secondary Operations

In addition to removing the flash, secondary (downstream) operations include flame treatment, leak detection, and post mold decorating.

Flame treatment is sometime used prior to bottle decorating to improve ink adhesion. Leak detection, on the other hand, is always required

to ensure the integrity of the bottle before it leaves the production line. If a bottle fails the leak detection test, it is rejected and sent back for regrind.

Advantages of EBM

There are several advantages of EBM, one of which is lower mold costs compared to ISBM or IBM and the capability of forming handles. Another advantage

of EBM is multi layer capability. In some instances, EBM bottles can have up to 7 layers of materials that include virgin plastic resin layers that encase a

regrind (PCR) layer, barrier layer, and adhesive layers to bond the other layers together.
