Thermoforming is one of the oldest and most common methods of
processing plastic materials. Vacuum formed products are all around
us and play a major part in our daily lives.
The process involves heating a plastic sheet until soft and then
draping it over a mould. A vacuum is applied sucking the sheet into
the mould. The sheet is then ejected from the mould. In its
advanced form, the vacuum forming process utilizes sophisticated
pneumatic, hydraulic and heat controls thus enabling higher
production speeds and more detailed vacuum formed applications.
Virtually all thermoplastics can be supplied as sheet and vacuum
formed. The more commonly used materials are listed below.
Typical Materials Used
Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene ABS
Polyester Copolymer PETG
Polyethylene (sheet and foamed sheet) PE
Polyvinyl Chloride PVC
Thermoformed plastic products can be produced by heating a plastic
sheet to a pliable forming temperature, shaping it as desirable,
and trimming it to create a usable end product. Plastics can be
thermoformed through various processes which include vacuum
snapback, plug assist forming, and thick and thin gauge
thermoforming. Different raw materials used for manufacturing
thermoformed plastic products include acrylics, bio-degradable
polymers, polycarbonates, acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS),
polyethylene (PE), polypropylene (PP), polymethyl methacrylate
(PMMA), polystyrene (PS), and poly vinyl chloride (PVC).
Thermoformed plastic products are usually lighter in weight and
relatively-stronger compared to traditional packaging materials
such as glass and woods. Thus, they are most-widely used in
different packaging applications in electronic, healthcare, and
food packaging industries .
Based on application, the global thermoformed plastic products
market can be segmented into six categories: food packaging,
appliances, electronic packaging, healthcare packaging, automotive,
and others. Thermoformed plastic products find the largest
application in the food packaging industry. Thermoformed plastic
products are used in the food packaging industry as a barrier to
bacteria, odor, and moisture to food products.
