What is Blow Molding?
Blow molding is the process used to make hollow, plastic products such as containers or bottles. These plastic products or parts are created by extruding a tube of hot plastic, called a parison, into an open mold. Compressed air forces the plastic outward into the shape of the mold. Once it is properly molded, the plastic is cooled and hardened. Finally, the mold is opened and the completed, blow molded product is removed. The blow molding process is highly complex and requires the expertise of professional designers and engineers. Please contact us with your questions; our team is happy to help guide you through the process.

So we finally went through and assembled 5000 parts manufactured for us by VP, and we had very low percentage of nonconforming parts. I am very happy with the work VP did. They are an excellent supplier for plastic parts and I highly recommend them.

Valencia Plastics was a very professional company in helping in deciding in what direction to go with my invention. First they developed the 2D and 3D drawings that I required to make my prototype and then the actually helped me in finding a 3d printing company that can actually make the prototype for us... I would recommend this company to someone that needs a plastic or blow molded product.
