Swine Flu Injects Some Life Into Injection Molders

The push to deliver swine flu vaccines is creating a short-term boom for some plastics processors. An injection molder in Bradenton, FL called Delaney Manufacturing got a rush order for up to 50,000 polystyrene trays used to ship vaccine from a major pharmaceutical company. Delaney was first contacted in July, and began production in mid-October. The first shipment is due in late October. The company has presses that range in clamping force from 55 to 500 tons. Another hot injection molded product is a respiratory mask designed to protect users from the swine flu virus.
