As per our Shipping and Returns Policy, custom cuts and fabricated parts are non-returnable. If you need an over- or undersized item, note it under "Comments" during Checkout. Cut-to-size orders have an acceptable cut tolerance of 1/8" (0.125"), so clarify if the adjustment is to be made on the (+) or (-) side of the saw blade.Please review our full return and shipping policy here.
Measure Twice, Cut Once
Since custom cuts and fabricated parts are non-refundable, be very careful while measuring your dimensions. As each cut is nominal, even the slightest miscalculation could be costly.
How to Use a Measuring Tape
Extend your tape measure several inches to find the 1 and 2 inch markers. In between the inch markers you’ll find 16 equally spaced tick marks.
Measure by counting the increments beyond the nearest inch. As the increments decrease, so does the length of the mark. For example, 1/2" has a bigger mark than 1/4" which has a bigger mark than 1/8". The smallest mark follows at 1/16". Please be aware that some measuring tapes may have even smaller increments.
Features of a Measuring Tape: Sliding End Hook
The sliding end hook is designed for two different types of measurements. An outside measurement (where the hook of the tape hangs over an edge), requires the hook to slide out a bit to account for the thickness of the material. When making an inside measurement (where the hook will push up against a surface), the clip slides in, again, accounting for its thickness. The measuring tape self-adjusts to guarantee an accurate measurement (as far as the tape is concerned).
Acrylics have outstanding resistance to long-term exposure to sunlight and weathering. Acrylic has excellent optical properties and is more resistant to impact than glass. In addition, acrylic has low water absorption, good electrical resistivity, and fair tensile strength. Applications are infinite, including art installations, outdoor signs, glazing, aircraft canopies, skylights, automotive taillights, dials, buttons, lighting applications, knobs, and machine covers.

Great quality and a nice clean cut. Box came kinda dirty, but the acrylic was well protected from dirt or breakage.
good price and service
Interstate Plastics was helpful in getting us the product but it was unfortunate we couldn't get longer lengths shipped. We wanted a 10 foot rod and it had to be cut. Otherwise no complaints. good service
Interstate Plastics is a good information source so we've always looked to them for advice and plastics. They have been a great help over the last 10 or so years so I felt compelled to say thank you as they have done so many times for me. God bless.
I needed a large oddly cut to size plexi rod. The guy at tap was so unhelpful but I found Interstate Plastic's number. IP not only gave me a GREAT price, but also custom cut the plexi. The staff is very friendly and knows a lot. I'm definitely going back for more!
Very pleased with the product. Will order again.
This is a great product for design work. We order specific sizes from Interstate and get great cuts each time. No hassle and no worries.
I had a rod arrived cracked. Interstate shipped me a replacement, the whole process took 6 business days. It wasnt the most pleasant experience but they handled the situation fairly well.
Never had a damaged rod, and delivery time is exceptional. Shipping charges bit me a bit, but its still cheaper than anywhere else I could go.
I need a larger diameter rod than the options listed on website, so I called and spoke to a friendly gal who helped me place my order over the phone. Even though I had to wait a little longer than usual it was worth it because they were able to special order the rod for me. Thank you Interstate for always taking care of my orders.
Interstates extruded acrylic rod arrived as expected and earlier than promised. I was pleased with the transaction but because of the shipping cost, I wish it had been available at the branch.
