Thermoforming materials types,choosing

What is thermoforming?What themoforming materials is better
Here,we make a selection of the most commonly used thermoforming materials.Hope it is useful for your Themoforming materials choosing.

1-ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene):

One of the most widely used thermoplastic materials due to its impact strength, rigidity and abrasion resistance.

Equipment enclosures,Medical device enclosures,Vending displays  Automotive trim,Protective headgear,Appliance enclosures,Storage bins

2-ACRYLIC (PMMA – Polymethyl Methacrylate, Plexiglass):

Combines clarity, weather ability and impact strength. Many colors available.

Skylights,Windows,Transparent or tinted enclosures

3-HDPE (High Density Polyethylene):

Excellent impact and chemical resistance. Good cold temperature properties. Dimensionally not as stable as other materials.

4-HIPS (High Impact Polystyrene):

Low cost, forms easily. Available in many colors. More brittle than ABS.

5-KYDEX (PMMA / PVC blend):

Good general-purpose material, offering excellent impact and chemical resistance in a highly cosmetic sheet. Most grades are flame retardant to UL94-V0. Available in many colors and textures.

6-PC (Polycarbonate):

Very high impact strength. Clear. High temperature resistance.

7-PEI (Polyetherimide, Ultem):

Very high temperature grade material. Autoclavable. Natural amber color.

8-PETG (Polyethylene Terephthalate Glycol):

A transparent copolyester with high-impact strength and chemical-resistant properties.

 Medical trays and totes,Signs,Displays,Machine guards and housings

9-PP (Polypropylene):

Excellent chemical resistance. Rigid, with very good impact strength. Good at higher temperatures. But dimensionally not as stable as other materials, similar to HDPE.

10-PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride):

Rigid material. Very good impact strength. Flame retardant. Limited availability.

Aircraft interiors,Electronic enclosures,Medical equipment covers,Mass transit,Testing equipment enclosures

11-TPO (Thermoplastic Polyolefin):

Outstanding impact properties. Available with a high gloss finish. Good for outdoors applications. More difficult to form, especially deep draw shapes.

Automotive interior/ exterior components,Construction equipment enclosures,Green energy and demanding outdoor applications.

Dehui Thermoforming materials:

We are the manufacturer of APET, PETG film and sheet.Here we would like to introduce our PET film and PVC film for thermoforming.

  PETG film/Apet film :APET (Amorphous-polyethylene terephthalate) is a thermal plastic and part of the polyester product family. It provides unsurpassed gloss and transparency for the ultimate in product visibility. APET is utilized in a broad range of applications, including vacuum forming, food and non-food packaging, folding and set-up boxes, stationery, as well as printing and graphics. APET ,PETG film is more environmentally friendly to replace PVC
