unique services

that give our customer the edge

Custom Thermoforming

Star Plastic specializes in custom thermoforming of blisters, clamshells, tray and tray lids to precise customer specifications. Complete design, tooling, and fast turnarounds are only part of the total services we offer.

Unique Materials

We form flocked and metalized material, PET, PLA, PE, PVC, PS and ABS. We can form 7 mil to 70 mil in any color or texture. Special materials can add an extra measure of elegance to your packaging or display and create a more lasting impact.

Quick Turnarounds

The flexibility of our 12 thermoforming machines enables us to turn jobs in a matter of days or hours. It is not uncommon for a customer to call us in a bind and ask us for the job that same day or the next. We can often accommodate these requests.

Low Volume Economies

Our equipment mix and lower set-up times, allows us to run small jobs much more economically than many traditional in-line thermoformers. Off line set-ups can often be performed in minutes allowing multiple jobs to be completed in a single shift.

Use Your Own Tooling

Star Plastic is able to take your existing tooling and tailor it to run on our equipment. This capability is rare among thermoformers, it can mean a substantial savings to avoid the cost of new tooling design and fabrication.

Deep Draw Thermoforming

We're able to form 70 mil high-impact polystyrene, 6-1/2 inches deep and greater for larger, taller display trays and specialty applications. We can also form and inline cut large clamshells for products requiring a deep shell.

Flocked Materials

We stock various flocked materials used for imparting a high sheen or velvety surface texture. These materials add elegance to your packaging or display and create a higher perceived value in the marketplace.

Automated Edge Fold

Our automated (slide blister) edge fold and card insertion machine, offers an environmentally responsible solution with easy source separation and segregation for efficient plastic and paperboard recycling.

Long-run Capabilities

Our larger format machines routinely meet requests for hundreds of thousands and even millions of blisters or clamshells. Running fast equipment on two shifts with inline cutting, we typically are able to meet and surpass our customer's finished part usage requirements.

In-house Tool Design

In house tooling design, CNC prototyping, plus both small and large thermoforming machines coupled with tool size flexibility, mean better economics for our customers. This combination allows us to meet your changing needs and add value to your organization.

Shared Cost Combo Runs

We can combine multiple customers on a single run several times a month. Reducing cost significantly compared to a dedicated tool. The sharing of the set up and operation on a combo run allows you to source your clamshells or blisters in the most economical manner.

Guaranteed Quality

We promise our customers that whatever the challenge or requirement, Star Plastic is committed to your 100% satisfaction—guaranteed. We are a 9001:2015 ISO certified supplier of thermoformed products ready to meet and exceed your expectations.
