there are several different types of materials used in thermoforming. these include various thermoplastic blends like polycarbonate, non woven fibers and more.
kydex is a thermoplastic acrylic polyvinyl chloride. the word "thermoplastic" means vacuum forming is what is usually done by manufacturers of parts for airplanes and transit buses, but that requires additional equipment. originally, kydex was designed for use in molding the parts used to finish out the underground kydex secrets .
ideally the core sheet temperature should be within 10°f of the surface temperature. as kydex sheet is heated, the inherent stresses in the sheet will relax. during that process, the following four stages become evident: stage 1: the heating is marked by wide undulations and softening
advantages of vacuum forming include less expensive tooling, fast turnaround and easier maintenance and modification as compared to injection molding processes. thermoforming can be used to form thermoplastic sheets into three dimensional shapes. thermoforming requires a relatively low level of forming pressure, so tooling can be constructed

thermoforming is a manufacturing process where a plastic sheet is heated to a pliable forming temperature, formed to a specific shape in a mold, and trimmed to create a usable product. the sheet, or "film" when referring to thinner gauges and certain material types, is heated in an oven to a high enough temperature that permits it to be stretched into or onto a mold and cooled to a finished shape.
