Nowadays it is rare to see containers that do not contain some form of plastic. This is due to their ease of moulding and recycling. We will now explain the process that is carried out for the manufacture of plastic containers that we all have in our homes.
The manufacturing process The process of making plastic containers is based on separating a plastic called PET into small pellets which are melted and placed in a mould. These small grains of PET are then joined together and take the shape of the mould. When they are solid, they are heated again to be moulded into the final shape of the bottle.
Below you will find a video which explains the whole process in detail.
