Heavy-Gauge Thermoforming for the Transportation Industry

Joslyn Manufacturing produces heavy-gauge thermoformed components used in the transportation industry. We are ISO 9001:2015 certified with extensive experience in heavy-gauge thermoforming.

Heavy-gauge thermoforming is perfect for heavy truck components, including the ones we produce, such as:

  • Panels
  • Seating parts
  • Dashboards
  • Exterior Components
  • Bed liners
  • Floor mats

Our state-of-the-art technology includes an array of heavy-gauge thermoformers, which have PLC controls with touch screens to facilitate precision programming and ensure the highest reliability.

Materials Commonly Used in Heavy-Gauge Thermoforming

There is a wide range of thermoforming resins – and even more combinations – to provide the right properties for your heavy-gauge plastic formed product.

  • ABS (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene): A high-strength, impact-resistant resin, ABS and ABS blends are used in the production of many control panels and automotive components.
  • HIPS (high-impact polystyrene): This easy-to-process, low-cost resin is FDA-compliant and used in many POP applications that require excellent forming characteristics.
  • PC/ABS (polycarbonate/ABS blend): This UL-approved alloy is extremely resistant to impact.
  • HDPE (high-density polyethylene): Used in truck bed liners, pallets, tanks and more, HDPE is a cost-effective material with a high resistance to chemicals, impact and electrical conduction.
  • TPO (thermoplastic olefin): Often used in automotive component applications, TPO is strong and rigid with a high resistance to chemicals.
  • PVC (polyvinyl chloride)/Acrylic: This resin meets most stringent UL standards for flammability and can be made in a variety of colors and textures.
