Thermoforming

Thermoforming

Many plastic sheet materials can be shaped by thermoforming. Amorphous plastics like ABS and Acrylic generally have wide processing windows and good melt strength making them easy to thermoform.

Some plastics like HDPE, PP and PET have narrower processing windows and lower melt strength, which make them more difficult (but not impossible) to thermoform. As you can see, IPS carries a huge range of materials that are thermoformable to cover most applications.
