Advanced Blow Molding


Study of extrusion, stretch, injection and co-extrusion blow molding processes and their variations in relation to product, process, and design innovations in the industrial and packaging markets. Special attention is given to multi-layer barrier materials and constructions for improved barrier properties, extruder head and die designs, laboratory experimentation with bio-derived and engineering grade polymers, nanotechnology, and blow molded product performance testing. Spring Only.
