    What is Thermoforming Plastic?

    Thermoforming is a process during which a plastic sheet is heated to get a bendable form so that it can be molded into desired shape, which is cooled afterwards to create the finished usable product.

    The most common processes used in the market are vacuum snapback, thick and thin gauge thermoforming, and plug assist forming. Thermoformed plastics are all the time more used as a metal replacement using the heavy gauge process, making them suitable for applications such as industrial equipment, transportation, aerospace, kiosks, and medical devices.
