Drape Forming / Heat Molding

Are you in need of a custom light sconce, acrylic coffee table or end table,  a sneeze guard for your restaurant or curved windows for cabinetry?  All of these types of items would be produced using a process called drape molding. Using our state of the art heating equipment, The Plastics Guy heats acrylic up to over 320 degree's Fahrenheit, which softens the plastic like a wet noodle. Once the plastic is soft we carefully form it over a mold to achieve and exact contour. After it is in place we cool the material at a set pace over a period of several hours to reduce material stress and bowing.

Common drape molded items:

  • Acrylic wind screens
  • Light Sconces
  • Light Diffusers

  • Sneeze Guards
