    Looking specifically for white abs plastic in sheet form, .093 thick, with no hair cell texture at all. Need to use it for vac-forming.

    Is this what you are looking for? They have a bunch of different thicknesses. They also have High Impact Polystyrene, (HIPS).

    Thats actually the site I order all my plastics from, but that ABS has the hair cell on one side.

    By hair cell he means textured. If that helps anyone clear it up.

    I figured that's what he meant, but since I have not bought any from that company, or any for that matter yet, I didn't know if thats what he was looking for. So now I know.

    I'll keep an eye out.

    you wont see it when it's formed dude

    I use something similar to make xwing boxes.
    It's textured on one side but the other side remains smooth

    Trust me

    Well actually, if you form it, you can. I have seen castings where they tried to do that, and the soft plastic will raise the bumps up to the surface enough to see it.

    Anyways, I may have found another source for this.
