  The thing with bulged sheet metal...

... in that static-wave example is that it will invariably "pop" when pushed in a direction that reverses the bend. I really don't envision warped plastic or Royalex behaving in that way, though I suppose if everything were exactly right, it could. Normally, it just bends with fairly uniform resistance per amount of displacement when a force is applied, but doesn't "snap past center" with a pop.
