Don L. Peters - Hall of Fame Entry


Don L. Peters




Industry Areas:

A Principal Engineer, Blow Molding at Phillips Petroleum in Bartlesville, Oklahoma, Don Peters began his work in the injection molding field. He then shifted his focus to Blow Molding, and was instrumental in the development of the first blow molded automotive fuel tanks, and the technology of applying metal inserts to them.

He co-developed and patented the basic die shaping technology to improve wall thickness to provide for internal cooling, and to utilize moving sections of the dies to make one-piece irregularly shaped blow molded parts that would have been otherwise impossible to mold.

Don is a Fellow of the Society of Plastics Engineers, and received the Blow Molding Division's Outstanding Service Award in 1989, and their Lifetime Outstanding Achievement Award in 1990.

Don holds 36 patents assigned to Phillips Petroleum, and received the company's Lifetime Achievement Award in 1996.
