The process of creating plastic begins with small beads, known in the industry as resin. Additives are mixed with the resin to customize the plastic with different properties (color, anti-static, UVI, etc.), and the raw compound travels through the extruder, melting as it undergoes intense heat. Next, the molten plastic enters the die, forming the polymer into a ring, which is blown upward three stories into a bubble.
A chiller cools both the material and the machine. The plastic is then flattened as it comes down and cooled a final time.
