Dome blowing is a process whereby a sheet of heated plastic, usually cast acrylic, is heated up in a thermoforming oven. After the sheet has reached its forming temperature it is placed into a clamping ring and air is blown into the sheet. The elasticity of the sheet causes it to form into a uniform hemisphere - or dome.

Atlas are capable of forming a dome up to 1000mm in diameter in acrylic colours, frost & clear & PETG.
