To thermoform is to heat plastic sheets to a pliable forming temperature, and then mold this into a specific part shape in a mold. A thin-gauge thermoform is primarily used in the manufacture of disposable cups, containers, lids, trays, blisters, clamshells, and other products for the food, medical, and general retail industries. A thick-gauge thermoform includes parts as diverse as vehicle door and dash panels, refrigerator liners, utility vehicle beds, and plastic pallets.
