Vacuum Forming principleVacuum forming plastic in the UK requires massive supplies of raw material in order to fulfill public demand. The products used by us all every day dictate the need for kitchen containers, appliances, safety equipment, automotive parts, building equipment fabrications and Point of Sale (POS) displays to name but a few. These raw materials are High Impact Polystyrene (HIPS), ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene), Polypropylene, High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) and Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE) Recent studies are indicating massive changes in the development of compounds made from plastic aimed at replacing metal and wood. Vacuum formed plastic products make ideal substitutes for their heavier counterparts which can involve higher complexity and cost of production.
