tube and pipe thermoforming

Through research, Rhem Plastics can achieve higher thermoset properties that breaks up to 99% of memory of extruded pipe and tubing. In doing so, relaxation will be at a minimum.

Minimum diameters starting at .03125″ (1/32″) up to 4″

Minimum diameters starting at 1/8″ up to 24″

Minimum 1.00″ (1″) up to 40″

Overall expansion of a tube or pipe OD (outer diameter) can be thermoformed no greater than 60% of the original extruded tube/pipe size.

We offer non intrusive ID/seamless ID cavity thermoforming
