Thick Sheet Thermoforming

Thick sheet thermoforming is used for larger size parts for applications that cannot absorb high tooling cost. Soliant films are laminated to a plastic sheet which can consist of various resins. The decorated sheet is shaped by thermoforming using heat and vacuum and often pressure. After forming, the unnecessary area is trimmed off. The finished part is then ready to be installed.
