What is Thermoforming?

Thermoforming is the process of heating a thermoplastic sheet to its softening point. The sheet stretches across a single-sided mold. Then, it cools into the desired shape. The most common methods to get the sheet to conform to its final shape are vacuum-forming, pressure-forming, and mechanical forming. The procedure involves heating thermoformed plastic while pressed against a mold through vacuum pressure. The formed part enters an offline process or the cutting or trimming of the excess plastic.



Environmental Advantages

Thermoformed Plastic Packaging is the most promising sustainable environment-friendly alternative packaging.


Packaging materials can be standardized to feed recycling in both open and closed-loop recycling streams, taking advantage of the growing pool of recycled HDPE and PET from plastic bottles.


Recovered materials can be cleaned, extruded, and thermoformed into new packages.
