Thermoforming is a process for forming thermoplastics under the influence of heat and with the aid of compressed air or a vacuum. The process has increasingly found applications in the industrial sector. As an alternative to injection moulding, it is characterised by favourable mould costs and is particularly economical for small and medium-sized series.
For the rail sector with its strong fire safety regulations Senoplast developed a material offering new opportunities for railway interior designers. The product senosan® C60FR-5 is a halogen-free flame retardant PC/ABS sheet with a matt surface and meets the European regulation EN45545-2, applications R1-HL2 and R6 HL2.
