Blow molding and injection molding are two completely different processes. If you’re familiar with injection molding and now find yourself in need of blow molding, you’re in danger of making some serious mistakes.
Blow molding is different from injection molding in several significant ways: the process itself, the role of the process, the tolerances and margins of error, design considerations, and the iterative nature of developing the process.
If you need a part blow molded and you’re new to blow molding, this white paper will help you ask the right questions, avoid common pitfalls, and start you on a winning path.

- Blow Molding 101: What it is and how it differs from injection molding
- Why a perfect mold is only 50% of the job
- Some fairly graphic descriptions of failed blow molding projects (not ours, thank goodness!)
- The four things that matter in quality engineering a blow molding project
- Why your blow molding company might give you a lot of “definite maybes” at the beginning
- When blow molding is and isn’t an appropriate solution
