But what does this mean?
Find out more about the thermoforming process and the products we manufacture below.
Thermoplastic products are products made from polymers that can be melted and recast, which is achieved by the process of thermoforming, otherwise known as vacuum forming.
Vacuum formed products are all around us… you just might not know it yet!
They play a huge part in our daily lives and can be found almost anywhere, these products can be anything from packaging hips, car parts, product trays and even bike helmets.
There are huge benefits of vacuum forming, such as:
This is why we have the best technical team in the industry, to help assist with product design and the selection of material that best suits you. This means we can work with you more closely and collaborate with leading material suppliers to help develop your ideas.

Vacuum forming is a simplified version of thermoforming, where a sheet of plastic is heated at a hot temperature and formed against a mould by a vacuum, which sucks the air out and shapes the plastic around the mould.
Here at Plas-Tech Thermoforming Ltd, all of our tooling is produced in-house using computer-aided design (CAD) / computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) technology and multi machining centres.
This allows us to produce high-quality tooling for vacuum forming and injection moulding; which allows us to produce bespoke thermoplastic products for our customers, fast and effectively for their projects.
If you don’t have a final idea for your project, don’t worry about it. Plas-Tech can support your production by helping to develop your ideas, support the process, create your design and provide rapid prototyping to ensure you’re getting the best quality.
We also make the tools needed to deliver what is needed on time and in full, that’s our promise to all of our customers!
