Why Thermoforming is Right for Your Project

Back to All Posts

Thermoforming is a fast, cost-effective and extremely flexible manufacturing process that has been adopted by industries across all sectors. As a thermoforming specialist based in Yorkshire, we know a thing or two when it comes to your thermoforming projects. Here are some of the top benefits of using thermoforming.

Thermoforming Flexibility

The flexibility offered by thermoforming is unmatched. The methods of thermoforming include vacuum forming & injection moulding and can fit most client requirements, in almost all industries. Thermoformed products and parts are all around us and you may not even know it, some of the industries where thermoforming is common include: 

  • Agricultural 
  • Medical 
  • Automotive 
  • Motorhomes, holiday homes & caravans
  • Handling & packaging 
  • Refrigeration

Material Selection & Recyclability 

The material selection with thermoforming is vast with each choice coming with its own characteristics with each plastic suited for different environments & applications. The material you decide to use will depend heavily on your industry and the environments the plastic part will encounter. Commonly used plastics within thermoforming include, but are not limited to: 

  • Acrylonitrile butadiene (ABS)
  • High-density polyethylene (HDPE)
  • High-impact polystyrene (HIPS)
  • Polypropylene (PP)
  • Polycarbonate (PC)

Another huge advantage of thermoforming is how material selection is becoming more environmentally aware. As we become more conscious of our plastic usage, we’re able to begin to implement sustainable plastic alternatives. If a sustainable alternative isn’t possible, thermoformed plastics can be widely recycled and/or reused for other projects, further reducing waste and the environmental impact of plastics. 

Durability & Quality 

In general, plastic is a very durable material. Our thermoformed products are extremely resilient and hold an impressive strength-to-weight ratio. Here at Plas Tech, we don’t settle for ‘good’, our continued investment in modern equipment combined with our gold standard of customer care ensures we always deliver the highest quality products.

Speed & Cost-efficiency

Thermoforming is an extremely cost-effective and relatively fast manufacturing process compared to other manufacturing processes. It utilises less expensive tooling which lowers costs and makes it ideal for projects on tighter budgets. Thermoforming also allows for faster turnaround times on projects, ideal for businesses needing parts quickly. Here at Plas Tech, we’re able to offer even faster turnaround times compared to other thermoforming companies thanks to our in-house tool room.
