    Terephthalate is not used in blow molding because it has a high melting point and is not easily malleable. Blow molding requires a plastic that can be melted and shaped into a hollow form, which is not possible with terephthalate. Polypropylene, polythene, and PVC are commonly used in blow molding due to their lower melting points and ability to be easily molded into various shapes.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    What is the minimum air pressure required in the blow molding process?

    • A.

      350 kPa

    • B.

      400 kPa

    • C.

      450 kPa

    • D.

      500 kPa

    Correct Answer
    B. 400 kPa
    Explanation
    In the blow molding process, the minimum air pressure required is 400 kPa. This pressure is necessary to ensure that the plastic material is properly inflated and takes the shape of the mold. If the pressure is too low, the plastic may not fully expand, leading to defects in the final product. On the other hand, if the pressure is too high, it can cause the plastic to rupture or deform. Therefore, 400 kPa is the optimal air pressure for the blow molding process.
