First commercialization of bi-oriented HDPE bottles made with ISBM technology

  • ISBM (Injection Stretch Blow Molding) bottle production using bi-oriented HDPE
  • Weight reduction of up to 50% possible
  • Combination of light-weighting and high mechanical performances

The first 1L bi-oriented HDPE bottles, manufactured by Incoplas Italia in HDPE produced by Total and filled/packed by I.C.E. FOR, are now available on mass market shelves. The bottles are extremely light and at the same time highly resistant.

Combination of light-weighting and high mechanical performances

For the last few years Incoplas has focused on developing ISBM bottle production using bi-oriented HDPE. This latest development based on the ISBM bi-oriented HDPE technology and HDPE SB 1359 resin from Total differs from other plastic bottles by a combination of extreme light-weighting, high mechanical performances, soft touch and transparency. Compared to equivalent blow moulded (HDPE EBM) bottles a weight reduction of up to 50% can be achieved.

I.C.E. FOR SpA, a leading Italian producer of detergents, cleaners, emulsions, waxes and disinfectants, is one of Incoplas’ first customers.
