MHP has many years experience in manufacturing and can offer specialist expertise in vacuum forming and toolmaking. Our resources page is where we will be sharing the benefit of our experience with you in a series of design guides. Our first one published is below ... A Design to Vacuum Forming.
The Vacuum Forming Process
This is the process of moulding extruded plastic sheets heated to a pre-determined temperature. The sheets are heated and then sucked down by applying a vacuum to the underside of the mould, atmospheric air pressure then forces the heated plastic to adopt the shape of the mould.
REACH, ROHS Dodd-Frank and WEEE Compliance Statement
Within the plastics industry, the onus falls on polymer manufacturers to register their product and provide clear information about any hazardous properties of a substance. We buy all of our materials from within the EU and as such, they are REACH compliant as standard. We have copies of the required Safety Data Sheet for all polymers we use and we are happy to supply those on request.
