Answered: Clarification on <R7.f> and bending plastics

Hey Karthik:

<R7.f> States:

Can you please clarify on “chemically treated, melted or cast.”

Would vacuum forming be an example of melting or casting a plastic, or does that fall under “heating the polycarbonate to aid in bending”

Further more, could you form a plastic by placing it around a mold and manually applying heat to it in order to bend it to the mold’s shape?

Cast is defined by as: “an object made by shaping molten metal or similar material in a mold.”


One of my friends directed me to this thread:
