Thermo-formed parts and blister packs

Made of PA, PE, PP, PVC, PS, PET and ABS

Manufacture

Thermo-plastics lose their stiffness and strength with increasing temperature, making them deformable. With the help of a vacuum or compressed air, the thermoplastics are shaped into the desired form and further processed according to requirements.

Thermo-plastics

Thermo-plastics is an umbrella term for several types of plastics. These generally can be subdivided into two categories, amorphous and semi-crystalline thermoplastics. The most obvious distinguishing feature of these two types is transparency. Semi-crystalline thermoplastics such as PA, PE or PP offer a higher contact surface in which the light can refract thanks to an ordered and partially parallel chain structure. These plastics appear somewhat milky or even opaque. Amorphous thermo-plastics such as PVC, ABS or PS are crystal clear due to their disordered chain structure.
