Here is a list of some of those materials, along with the benefits
they provide to help make your product the top-performing product
you need it to be:
- The process can use ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene), which
includes a broad range of resins used in a number of different
applications which can be formulated to meet UL flammability
- Clear materials are also common in vacuum forming and include
Acrylic (PMMA – Polymethyl Methacrylate, Plexiglass®) which has
good scratch resistance, PETG, (Polyethylene Terephthalate Glycol)
which has good impact strength and forms very well, Polycarbonate
(Lexan®, Makrolon®) which has very high impact strength and
performs well in high heat environments.
- Plastic forming can also use other materials such as PVC/Acrylic
(KYDEX®/Boltaron®) which meets the most stringent UL Flammability
rating, (UL94-V0) is available in aviation grades, and is available
in custom color at low minimums.
- Other common materials include HIPS, (High Impact Polystyrene)
which is a low-cost resin, TPO (Thermoplastic Polyolefin) which
performs well in outdoor applications, HDPE, (High Density
Polyethylene) a cost-effective material for applications requiring
high-impact strength), PC/ABS, which can achieve a high gloss and
also meets UL94-V0, and other materials as well.
Difference Between Vacuum Forming And Thermoforming
Vacuum forming is a type of thermoforming. Vacuum forming and
plastic thermoforming are similar in the sense that they both
require heat. However, the two process are used for different
When thermoplastic is heated to a certain temperature, the process
is vacuum forming. If plastic is produced under extreme pressures
and temperatures, it’s known as thermoforming.
How does vacuum forming work?
A sheet of plastic will be heated until it’s pliable. Once the
plastic has reached the optimal temperature it will be pressed into
a mould and the air between will be vacuumed out. Using a vacuum
has an array of benefits, you have the ability to produce large
parts. It’s suitable for fitness equipment and displays for point
of purchase too.
Which is the most cost-effective?
In comparison, to plastic thermoforming, the use of a vacuum
forming can work out somewhat cheaper, in terms of the costs to
operate machines. As well as this, the production process of
plastic is easier for vacuum forming so you needn’t worry about it
Thermoforming is cost-effective and you have the freedom to design
whatever you need. The time for plastic to cool is much quicker
which is ideal if you’ve got a deadline to meet.
Custom vacuum forming can be tailored to suit your specific needs and requirements.
Talbot Designs create cost-effective pieces that have a
Alternatively, thermoforming is extremely efficient. If you’re
looking to produce high-quality products and lots of them,
thermoforming is ideal for you.
Although custom vacuum forming produces less plastic, Talbot
Designs can create a range of shapes and sizes to suit your
individual demands. Talbot Designs also aim to meet your exact
requirements, they follow a project from start to finish, ensuring
that the finishing product is to your exact taste and style.
If you’re looking for the opportunity to detail your plastic, you
need vacuum forming. Why not try Talbot Designs? They specialise in
producing complex designs and custom fabrications. Despite
thermoforming being more accurate, vacuum forming is the most
affordable, enabling you to receive excellent value for money.
