Bucks

Used in the vacuum forming process, these bucks are typically made of cast aluminum. Vacuum forming bucks can be easily identified by their surface being littered with small pinholes. After a sheet of hot thermoplastic is stretched atop the buck, these pinholes allow trapped air be vacuumed from large or intricately detailed areas so that the plastic may take the true form of the buck.
