Thermoforming

Thermoforming involves the controlled heating of a thermoplastic material to a temperature where its shape may be altered to the shape of the mold. The physical change to the preheated thermoplastic is accomplished by vacuum, air, pressure or direct mechanical force. Once the sheet assumes the desired shape of the mold design, it is allowed to cool on the mold.
