FORM/TEC Plastics began in 1975. A family business started by William and Jacki Shields; FORM/TEC began making their patented Silhouette Fairing System for motorcycles. This acrylic fairing was an immediate success, forever changing the motorcycle windscreenfield. Using years of experience, FORM/TEC expanded from forming acrylic parts (for all types of industry) and general vacuum forming of all plastics, to include the forming of polycarbonate optically correct. Polycarbonate, the world’s strongest optical plastic, is difficult to work with (to form optically correct) and the surface readily scratches. To address both issues, FORM/TEC introduced the SHIELDS® line of optically formed polycarbonate, protected with their exclusive SUPERCOAT™ hard-coat, and often their permanent ANTI-FOG coating. The combination of strength and clarity with abrasion and chemical resistance levels near that of glass, make SHIELDS® windshields highly demanded. SHIELDS® products are used in many industries; from lightweight faceshields to 3/4” thick monolithic windshields. SHIELDS® products can be found worldwide, serving the needs of customers that demand optical quality, protection, innovative engineering, and satisfying customer service.
