What is Thermoform Packaging?

Thermoform packaging is a process that creates custom plastic designs. To create the packaging, we use the thermoform process, which involves heat to help soften the plastic, shape it, and then cool and form it into a custom mold design.

At Andex, we perform the thermoform process with great attention to detail so that you can receive a product that’s guaranteed to fit tight.

Common Thermoform Tray FAQs

What is a thermoform tray?

Thermoform trays are plastic trays that are manufactured utilizing the thermoforming process. Thermoforming allows for one-of-a-kind, professional packaging designs. Trays are usually available in color and clear, and are commonly manufactured using RPET, PETG, and PVC materials.

What is the thermoforming process?

Thermoforming involves applying a vacuum to stretch sheets of heated thermoplastic sheets over a mold to form a shape. Thermoforming provides many benefits, including being a lightweight material, quick product development, aesthetically appealing designs, and industry-compliant materials. Packaging companies commonly use thermoforming for plastic trays, clamshells, and end caps.

Can PVC be thermoformed?

Yes! PVC is commonly used in thermoform trays. PVC is a good material to use for thermoforming because of its strength.

What material is used in thermoforming?

At Andex, we use PETG, RPET, and PVC materials. PETG (or polyethylene terephthalate), features excellent clarity, durability, and resistance to acids. It’s fairly easy to thermoform using PETG. RPET (or recycled polyethylene terephthalate), as it’s name implies, is a highly efficient, greener option. With RPET, you still get a strong thermoforming material, making it a great alternative to PETG and PVC. Finally, PVC (or polyvinyl chloride), is the third most used thermoplastic, is quite flexible, and has the ability to form tightly.
