Vacuum Forming & Plastic Fabrication Services
As extremely experienced vacuum forming and plastic fabrication experts, we can meet all of your acrylic fabrication requirements. Utilising all the various techniques such as UV bonding, solvent and Tensol bonding, drape forming, vacuum forming and CNC machining, we have supplied industries with acrylic designs since 1947 with consistent high-quality plastic fabrication.
Plastic fabrication is readily used for various types of items and is now more frequently used compared to the likes of glass or metal. This is because plastic can be manipulated for shapes and sizes much easier, whilst also being a more durable type of material to use than glass (depending on how it has been fabricated).
Plastic Extrusion – The method of plastic extrusion is well known for being used to construct the likes of tubes, pipes and sheeting parts in various shapes and sizes. There are commonly two forms in which the method of plastic extrusion is carried out: profile extrusion and sheet extrusion.
Plastic Foaming – The method of plastic foaming tends to be used in the manufacturing of insulation for industries like construction. It will usually consist of using polystyrene and/or polyurethane being used to form products such as solid plank or bun stock forms.
Plastic Welding – The method of this is much like the welding of metal; plastic welding or moulded plastic fabrication uses heat to its advantage in binding two plastics together.
Plastic Lamination – The method of plastic lamination consists of adding a protective layer to your bespoke fabrication. This will usually be done to an acrylic plastic design, plastic design or actually many types of materials to add style and toughness to the design, especially whereas the product may be able to easily break.
Compounding – The method of compounding consists of plastic fabrication through binding two types of plastic into a single product by forming them into a bespoke shape or size. Compounding uses moulding and heating methods to reach a melting point.
Acrylic Designs and Fabrication Company
We have produced some of the largest polycarbonate and acrylic fabrication products ever made and currently hold the world record for the largest beer bottle ever fabricated in acrylic designs. We supplied a huge 4 section water pressure unit to Stuttgart University for a UK contractor and also work extensively with retail fit out companies in hotels and retail environments. We have 3m+ x 2m+ ovens which are considerably larger than most other fabricators. This means we can drape form larger sheets, up to 50mm thick.
We blow the largest acrylic Teedy™ domes available which are up to 2200mm diameter. We have a huge range of Teedy™ acrylic domes in stock, which are up to 1800mm in diameter and ready for dispatch within 24 hours. We also have a range of Teedy™ polycarbonate domes ready to despatch. No one else can offer this service. When it comes to plastic fabrication, we won’t be beaten – we are proud to be the UK’s premier acrylic fabrication specialists, with decades of experience working with Perspex fabrication and acrylic forming under our belt.
