Vacuum (Thermo) Forming Plastics
Division:Life Sciences
Region:Simcoe County
City:Barrie, ON
School:Maple Grove P.S.
Abstract:This project studied how to vacuum form plastic parts. The project investigated different types of plastics, thicknesses of plastics and different amounts of sag to create plastic hats using a home- designed vacuum forming table and mold. Reused 1L pop bottles were the intended source of plastic for this project, but 1mm PETG plastic made the best hats.
