Decorative Plastic for Heat Bending Plastics

The thermoplastic decorative sheets that Innovative Laminations manufactures can be re-molded or formed at specific temperatures. You can heat bend (or strip heat or line bend) our plastic sheet to give it a well-defined line bend for your point of purchase displays or other applications. After bending plastics, the material is normally put onto a fixture and then cooled. After cooling, the sheet holds its basic form, but also maintains the bend. There are a multitude of ways  of plastic bending including radiant heat, convection ovens and hot wire.

We offer hundreds of decorative plastic products suitable for heat bending applications. Fabricate your point-of-purchase retail displays, marine parts and decorative trim, signage and other applications.
