Priority Plastics Invests in More Capacity. More Innovation. More diversity of products.
Priority Plastics announces the acquisition and installation of new ISBM – Injection Stretch Blow Molding – production capabilities in their Portland, Indiana manufacturing facility. This patented, single-stage technology is new to the United States and exclusive to Priority Plastics, significantly increasing PET container capacity and the ability to offer unique container shapes and sizes.
These new technological capabilities for Priority Plastics literally STRETCH the uses of PET materials to totally new and innovative applications and packaging uses.
From one single piece of production machinery, containers can range in size from 1-gallon to as large as a 25-gallon drum in a variety of neck shapes.
More Options. More Solutions.
Larger Volume Containers
The ONLY PET technology for containers as large as 25 gallons. Overall lower weights than HDPE with better rigidity and higher resistance to stressing and cracking. Smooth, glossy surface – transparent, when needed.
Wide Neck Openings
This technology is incredibly diverse when it comes to larger neck openings. This fruit/vegetable tray is clear, durable and stackable – with a “neck opening” of 22″ x 14″. A new experience in unique application for PET.
Handle integration is part of the process. “Handle-ware” is a growing market segment in the packaging industry and this technology provides Priority Plastics with a true pathway to product innovation.
Stackable PET Containers
Flexible – but, unbreakable handles are featured on this line of 20 liter stackable PET containers. Rigid and durable, these are ideal substitutes for hdpe material containers. Clear, too!
Customized for YOUR Brand
This technology give us the ability to customize molds for a more unique and innovative package. We can help to meet and exceed branding objectives.
Our capabilities feature customized molds for more unique and innovative brand statements in your packaging presentations.
Let the quality of your brand shine through!
What IS ISBM?
Injection Stretch Blow Molding. This acronym literally describes every aspect of the process!
- Heated PET Resins are melted and INJECTED into a preform mold.This stage determines the neck finish of the container.
- Materials are STRETCHED as pressurized air is BLOWN into the cavity. This forms the plastic to the mold walls.
- And, the final formed containers are ejected from the MOLDING templates.
- Containers are checked for quality and consistency.
More diversity of products with Injection Stretch Blow Molding.
Expanded capabilities mean the filling of more product orders – more promptly, and the servicing of an ever-widening range of innovative packing specifications.
PET is 100% recyclable and reusable with lighter weights than traditional HDPE containers and is now made using a lower carbon footprint per bottle produced.
This patented, exclusive technology saves up to 40% in electricity. It is equipped with an air regeneration system designed to recover approximately two-thirds of the high pressure blowing air. Priority Plastics continues to invest in smarter machines to help meet their sustainability goals and those of their customers.
