Thermoforming is the plastic production process that heats a two-dimensional rigid thermoplastic sheet and uses vacuum and/or pressure to form that sheet into a three-dimensional shape. Productive Plastics’ core competency is in cut-sheet heavy gauge thermoforming with sheet materials ranging from .060 to .500 inches thick. Typical applications for custom heavy gauge thermoformed components include transportation (rail cars, buses, trucks), industrial equipment, medical device , kiosks and many types of plastic enclosures.
