Cleveland, OH-headquartered PolyOne Corp. now offers six blow molding machines in the U.S., including a new monolayer machine for color matching in Arizona. PolyOne’s blow molding equipment eliminates the need for traditional line trials and individual color matches, allowing the color matching process to be completed faster, according to company executives. The machines help customers develop colors for brand recognition and examine colors and special effects on three-dimensional objects such as bottles.
PolyOne offers three types of blow molding machines: monolayer, trilayer and stretch. Monolayer machines process polyethylene, polypropylene and rigid polyvinyl chloride (PVC). Tri-layer machines mold polyethylene and polypropylene and offer three full layers of plastic for enhanced barrier protection. Stretch blow molding machines mold polyethylene terephthalate.
