Conduct Research

Thermoforming is a term used to describe two processes for making products from plastic sheets. In a vacuum-forming process, hot thermoplastic sheets are laid over a mold. A vacuum removes air, drawing the plastic into the cavities of the mold. When the plastic cools, the molded product is removed...
