Thermoforming is the process by which a sheet of plastic is heated in an oven until it reaches a temperature that allows it to be pliable. The sheet will begin to sag in the center when it is ready to form. At this point, the sheet is rotated out of the oven and is placed over an aluminum tool. Vacuum (suction) or pressure is applied, causing the plastic to form the exact shape of the aluminum tool. Our designers will help you decide which method and material type are needed to give the crisp detail and best functionality you’re looking for in your product.
