Thermoforming

Thermoforming of plastics

Columbus defines thermoforming as an application process, in which a thermoform-able, usually thin-walled plastic gets clamped into the frame, instead of the membrane, and then, in a second step, — with the force of vacuum and the use of constant heat treatment, which puts the plastic in a foil-like state — gets pulled over a template. After curing the plastic retains in the shape of the template.
