As experts in the manufacturing of plastic packaging, we specialise in injection moulding, extrusion, and die-cut services for a number of industries. We can produce packaging that is both food-safe and sterile, customised or standardised – all with our high-quality guarantee.
Injection moulding is a manufacturing process that entails molten plastic material being injected into a steel mould. Once cooled, this results in solid plastic products. See also the plastic injection moulding process
This is ideal for a company that needs over 30,000 pieces a year as it is economical, versatile, and compatible with almost any industry. Lower volumes can be addressed with the use of soft aluminium tooling.
Extrusion is similar to injection moulding, but with this methodology, we extrude the melted plastic directly into a steel die (as opposed to a mould) – the shape of which determines the shape of the final product.
This low-cost process is used for components and tubular parts that have a fixed cross-sectional profile.
A Packaging Solution for Every Need
At Plastech Limited, we offer a wide range of plastic packaging products that we produce and supply ourselves according to your unique requirements.
Our range of transparent and colour plastic tubes, containers, and tube cores with closures are popular for a variety of requirements, including protecting and transporting fragile items and storing and displaying tools and retail items.
Whether you need a sealed container or tubes, extruded or injection moulded – we can do it.
Our plastic folding cartons and box sleeves & wraps can be made in a variety of shapes and styles. Plastic cartons are perfect for combining clarity and design to ensure both product visibility and customised printing, labelling, or hot foil blocking.
Our clear plastic packaging trays and lids are available with four welded corners or as self-assembly D-lock trays with lids. They are perfect for company gifts or branding as we can also supply them as slip lids with added surface graphics using silk-screen printing or hot foil blocking.
We offer over 80 standard options in our range of clamshell packs and clamshell bowls.
These unique plastic boxes are tough and durable and can be customised with card inserts. Clamshell packaging is popular with retailers as it allows products to be displayed while minimising theft and damage.
While we specialise in extrusion and injection moulded plastics, we also offer cardboard packaging in the form of cardboard boxes, corrugate boxes, and bespoke presentation boxes which are designed to provide maximum protection.
