Common applications of thin-gauge thermoforming consist of rigid or semi-rigged packaging trays designed to contain anything from food to component parts used on factory assembly lines. Anything below .060 is generally regarded as thin gauge. Thin gauge parts are often designed to be disposable or recyclable.
Among Asheville Thermoform Plastic’s highest volume production parts are large size thin gauge forms used by the construction industry in poured wall applications. Parts handling trays used in assembly plants in the electronics, automotive and medical fields, and shipping protectors for the automotive sector are a few more of our biggest sellers over the years.
