PET Plastic Bottle Neck Finish and Closure

Written by wsigenesis. Posted in Uncategorized

I heard from a customer recently that the choice of the PET plastic bottle closure and PET preform neck design is as puzzling as a Rubik’s Cube.  He now wonders if he is drinking his OJ from a 358 DBJ PET plastic bottle? Pouring salad dressing out of a 38-400 or is it a 38mm deep skirt neck finish? Maybe he’s pumping soap from a Rieke RF-08 foamer with a 43mm PETneck thread?

The same could be said for polyethylene extrusion blow molding – is that RTD HDPE milk bottle sporting a SCII neck finish? Am I dispensing AgChem product from a HDPE bottle Rexam 63mm CRC compatible neck?

Yes, it can get confusing and make you wonder why there are so many different nomenclatures in what you would think is a standardized industry. PET plastic bottles and HDPE bottles neck and closure essentially have a common purpose; protect the product, seal against leakage, provide tamper evidency, and where needed to be child resistance. There are also specific applications where the type of product, temperature or environment will have an influence on the neck and bottle selection. Overall many designs are quite similar and perform equally. Aesthetics always plays a part as well.

As in any relationship both must work together. Bottle thread specifications must be dimensionally compatible with the closure to insure application and a proper seal.

Choosing the preferred closure allows for an accurate RNF (required neck finish) design. HDPE bottles neck finish dimensions are, of course, custom designed into the bottle mold. PET plastic bottle neck finishes are available, commonly in a preform, to fit most any closure or can be custom designed to fit a new closure.

Parker Plastics has an extensive line of PET preforms covering most any application whether it be food, household chemical or personal care.  Parker will help you match your closure with the correct neck finish and gram weight. Please review the wide array of preforms available from Parker Plastics.

Wholesale Plastic Bottles – HDPE Plastic Bottles – HDPE Bottles

Written by wsigenesis. Posted in Uncategorized

Parker Plastics is a wholesale plastic bottles manufacturer featuring custom and stock HDPE bottles, custom PET bottles and polypropylene bottles. HDPE plastic bottles were first manufactured by Parker in 1989 on a used 2 cavity extrusion blow molding machine making 8 ounce squeeze honey bear bottles.

In the past 25 years Parker Plastics has expanded its HDPE plastic bottle manufacturing to 20 machines capable of making HDPE bottles in sizes from 4 ounces up to 2.5 gallons (10 liter). The extrusion platforms vary from a single cavity to 12 cavity capability. In addition to the workhorse extrusion shuttle machines, Parker has added cutting-edge horizontal stroke blow molding equipment to manufacture HDPE plastic bottles.

Parker manufactures wholesale plastic bottles for a significant number of markets. Larger HDPE plastic bottles of 1, 2 and 2.5 gallon for the industrial chemicals, motor oil, and AgChem segments. Smaller sizes of 4 ounces through 1 liter HDPE bottles serve the RTD juices, household chemical and food segments. And, we can’t forget the squeeze honey bear too.

Neck finishes for our HDPE plastic bottles can be made in any specified size or feature. CRC or child resistant closure; DBJ for the dairy, beverage and juice markets that sport a tamper evident breakaway band, snap-on lids, or fitments. Sizes range from 18mm to 120mm.

Additional features offered with Parker Plastics HDPE bottles are view stripe, high percentage PCR (post consumer resin) resin, any color of the rainbow, handle ware, co-extrusion for multi-layer and wide mouth.

Custom bottle design has been the cornerstone of Parker Plastics since 1989. We take your concept from art-to-part using 3D design, rapid prototyping and state of the art mold manufacture. Whether it’s a me-too market equivalent or your own unique HDPE bottle design, Parker Plastics can make it happen in short order.

PET Inverted Plastic Squeeze Bottles

Written by wsigenesis. Posted in Uncategorized

Parker Plastics, Inc recently introduced their new 16 oz. PET Inverted Plastic Squeeze Bottle. The new 16 oz. joins the already popular 12 oz. and 18 oz. stock PET plastic bottles.

Parker teamed with Seaquist Closures (nka Aptar) to develop a custom plastic bottle design to facilitate their newly introduced SimpliSqueeze closure, the first of the inverted, valved closures in the market at the time. The inverted PET plastic squeeze bottles were designed not only to compliment the dimensional look of the SimpliSqueeze but also to meet the needs for controlled and precise dispensing of viscous products.

The PET inverted plastic squeeze bottles design requires a balance of the correct gram weight coupled with the ideal panel radius. The combination of bottle weight and panel radii ensures adequate “spring back” of the panels after squeezing. Too flat or rigid of panels will potentially cause creasing at the bottle edges not allowing return to the optimal shape for reuse.  The base is also designed to provide stability during the filling process.

Parker Plastics, Inc. line of PET inverted plastic squeeze bottles offer a billboard size label panel area whether one is using pressure sensitive or full body shrink sleeve labels.

There are many uses for plastic squeeze bottles including sauce, mustard, honey, agave, mayonnaise, salad dressing, and condiments.  Many marketers are also using this package as an upright container for squeeze, pourable or shaker applications.
