HP or High Impact PolyStyrene - HIPS

متریال و مواد وکیوم فرمینگ HP
HP vacuum forming materials
  • Persian equivalent: هایمپک – فیلم اچ پی
  • Uses: display stand, packaging and light weight, suitable for indoor applications
  • Strength: Medium
  • Density: 1.06 g/cm3
  • Formability: Easy
  • Colors: black, white and up to 10 different colors
  • Moisture absorption: No
  • The temperature range of plasticity in vacuum forming: 150 to 175 degrees Celsius or 302 to 347 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Conclusion: First-class plastic, can be flocked or velvety and easy to mold and not expensive

ABS or (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene)

متریال و مواد وکیوم فرمینگ ای بی اس
ABS vacuum forming materials
  • Persian equivalent: اِی بی اس
  • Uses: enclosures and covers, use in open spaces
  • Strength: resistant to impact
