Our Founders in 1995 had the experience and product Knowledge for fabrication and engineering in plastics. As their reputation and quality grew so did
Formation plastics was founded in 1995 from a small workshop in Rodley west yorkshire
to today employing over 15 staff over two large premises equalling 15,000 sq ft of workshop
The machinery may have expanded over the years to include large saw cutting facilities, CNC machines including routing milling and turning.
However our commitment is still the same from day one
To Provide the highest level of service so you always choose us for your plastic projects
this enables us to be
ONE OF THE UK’S LARGEST FABRICATORS AND ENGINEERS IN PLASTICS

Hot gas welding…
Hot gas welding is a fabrication process for thermoplastic materials. The process, invented in the mid 20 th century, uses a stream of heated gas, usually air, to heat and melt both the thermoplastic substrate material and the thermoplastic welding rod. The substrate and the rod fuse to produce a weld to ensure welding takes place, adequate temperature and pressure must be applied to the rod, along with the use of the correct welding speed and gun position. The weld quality, since this is a purely manual technique, is dependent on the skill of the welder.
Plastic welding is an art form in itself. With hot air plastic welding, we can weld a whole variety of plastics ranging from PVC, Polypropylene, Polycarbonate, Polyethylene, and PETG into tanks, chutes, hoppers, tunnels, and pipes, extractors, and housings.
Extrusion welding is a technique used to join thermoplastics and composites. The process involves using a welding machine that heats and melts a plastic filler material while simultaneously heating the base material to be welded. The pressurized molten filler plastic is extruded from the machine on to the surface of the base material. The two molten plastics (the filler and the base material) are allowed to cool to form a permanent bond.
