Hot forming represents a process condition and method, as distinct from injection molding. Hot forming is based on the need to make plastic or bioplastic sheets, and then secondary processing using high pressure air and vacuum plastic principle to manufacture products, the application of a very wide range. Life refrigerator interior decoration, bathtub, car interior decoration, flower pot, yogurt cup, drink cup, moon cake inner box, convenient noodle bowl, meal box and take-away packing box; Or industrial packaging for hanging card packaging (batteries, toothbrushes, toys), industrial buffer packaging materials, mobile phone packaging, bicycle helmet; Germicidal trays for medical use, packaging for medical equipment and dummies for CPR training.
Because the product application of hot molding covers everything, affecting every link of everyone's daily life, but the practitioners in the plastic industry is a small proportion, the outside world is not clear about the definition and content of hot molding. This thermoforming industry is so relevant to everyone's daily life, but there is a lack of attention and concerted development. Therefore, a hot molding association platform was established to participate in the formulation or provision of objective and impartial industry information, so that the government could standardize a safety, health and good quality standard for equipment manufacturers and product manufacturers in the hot molding industry to comply with. Will greatly help to improve the safety of food packaging, industrial product packaging and raw material source and use safety to maintain the quality of life of Chinese people and the safe use of plastic packaging environment.
The food packaging market in the thermoforming industry has grown by more than 20% each year since 2008. Industrial packaging partly affected by the international economic situation is very obvious, so the annual performance fluctuations with the fluctuations of the world economy. As most of the food packaging belongs to disposable supplies or tableware, related to the food safety of consumers. Therefore, on the one hand, the market continues to expand every year, on the other hand, the environmental protection of new materials and the establishment of safe material sources and manufacturing environment standards are increasingly strict.
The trend of the industry over the next few years will be to use
(1) Biodegradable biomaterials;
(2) Establish a recycling mechanism for plastic products;
(3) Use reduced-weight plastic packaging;
(4) more stringent environmental protection and laws and disposable plastic tableware and food packaging safety national standards;
(5) The demand for high-end equipment and molds in domestic manufacturing has increased in response to the trend of the industry and the implementation of national standards.
