Vacuum Forming + Supplies

Vacuum Forming is a type of thermoforming, the heating of a sheet of plastic that is stretched over a single-surface mold and pressed against the mold by a vacuum. It is also a viable alternative to plastic injection.

Thermoplastics such as High Impact Polystyrene Sheeting (HIPS) are the ideal and most suitable material for vacuum forming. The item used for the mold can be made of various materials.

Vacuum forming is a very popular, cost effective and efficient method for creating and processing a diverse range of molds and plastic processing applications.
