Plastic Technologies

Plastic TechnologiesThe co. introduces a process that uses injection stretch blow molding (ISBM) to create a new type of container handle.  Called Deep Grip™ packaging, the technology enables significant grip depth of more than 25mm or 1 in. on either side, with an extremely thin grip “web” thickness of less than 0.3 mm or .01 in., says the co. The end result is a grip deep enough for the average hand to completely close around without fingers touching the container wall.  The comfort and handling ability is similar to that experienced with a traditional handle, says the co. A wide range of sizes are available, ranging up to 6 l. or 1.5 gal, and beyond. Maximum bottle diameter is 220mm or 8.6 in.
