Measure Twice, Cut Once

Once we cut a stock size piece, we can't ever sell it as full size piece again. All cuts are nominal. So, PLEASE MEASURE CAREFULLY, and DOUBLE CHECK YOUR MEASUREMENTS BEFORE YOU ORDER. The old adage is espcially true here: measure twice, cut once. WE do it before we cut your piece, and YOU should do it before you order.

Using a measuring tape

Here's a little refresher on how to use a measure tape. First, let's talk about the increments. We'll assume that you're using the English or Imperial system of feet and inches. Extend your tape measure several inches and find the large 1 and 2. On most English measuring tape, the smallest increment is 1/16 of an inch. This means that there are 16 equally spaced marks between 1 and 2 inches on the tape. When measuring, count how many of these marks you are beyond the nearest inch. If your piece measures 7 inches and other 8 marks, that is 8/16 (1/2) for a total of 7-1/2".Let's say you were taking your second measurement (see below) and this time you counted 9 marks past the 7 inch mark. That means your piece is actually 7-9/16" long.

The clip on the end of my measuring tape slides back and forth. Is it broken?

No! The sliding clip on the end of the tape is designed for two different types of measurements. When you take an outside measurement (where you hand the clip of the tape over an edge), the clip slides out a little to account for the thickness. When you take an inside measurement (push the clip up against a surface), the clip slides in, again accounting for its thickness. The measuring tape self-adjusts so, either way, you get an accurate measurement.

UHMBVE - Overview

UHMW-PE anti-static can move products more safely in potentially volatile environments, such as munitions plants, grain handling facilities and explosive assembly facilities (air-bags) where a spark can cause a dust explosion. UHMW-PE anti-static protects products sensitive to build-up of electrical charges.

Modified to exhibit anti-static properties, its surface resistivity ranges from 105 to 109 (ohms/cm2). UHMW-PE anti-static is available in sheet, rod, board and profiles. UHMW-PE anti-static is compounded for situations where dust and static electricity pose significant problems.

UHMW-PE (also shortened to UHMW), stands for Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene. Its this extremely high molecular weight that gives UHMW-PE an unsurpassed combination of slickness, toughness and chemical resistance. Its a common plastic encountered every day in the form of food containers and many home appliances. Because of its low coefficient of friction, UHMW-PE is self-lubricating; it replaces unwanted grease and oil in many applications such as bearings and conveyors.The Food and Drug Administration has approved virgin UHMW-PE for use in the food industry. Reprocessed UHMW-PE is not approved for food contact.
