  • BLOW MOLDING -

    A method of fabrication in which a parison (hollow tube) is placed between the two halves of a mold (cavity), and forced to assume the shape of that mold cavity by use of air pressure.

  • CAPACITY -

    The total amount of volume inside the container.

  • FINISH -

    The plastic forming the opening of a container shaped to accommodate a specific closure.

  • LABEL PANEL -

  • MOLD -

    The cavity or matrix into which the plastic composition is placed and from which it takes its form.

  • PANELING -

    Distortion (side wall collapse) of a container occurring during aging or storage, caused by the development of reduced pressure inside the container

  • PARTING LINE -

    A mark on a molding or casting where the two halves of the mold meet in closing.

  • RESIN -

    Any of a class of solid or semi-solid organic products of natural or synthetic origin, generally of high molecular weight with no definite melting point.

  • CLOSURE -

    Attaches the sprayer to the bottle

  • DIPTUBE -

    Creates the path by which product is conveyed from the bottle to the sprayer.

  • GASKET -

    Prevents leakage of product by providing a conformable seal between the sprayer and bottle finish.

  • NOZZLE -
