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.

Acrylic applications are infinitely broad. Here are a few common examples:
Glass Substitute: aquariums, viewing ports for submersibles, automobile light lenses, hockey rink guards, riot protection, bullet-resistant glass applications (i.e. banks, gas stations, vehicles transporting valuables)
They got me the right product (the acrylic clear tube) and the salesperson was knowledgeable and friendly.
I wasn't too keen on purchasing online. I called the 888 number and had the acrylic ordered within minutes. Seems they have a very professional, very smart team. Thank you.
Excellent service and quality acrylic tubing - I most definitely recommend them to anyone!
Very frustrating that I could not get the desired length. They have to be cut to fit on UPS. I suppose pickup would be an option but thats a bit of a PITA! Price is good though.
Acrylic arrived on time and was packed nicely. Impressed with the quality of the items I ordered and Interstates customer service. I will certainly order again.
We use these tubes to for several purposes. They are strong and crystal clear. We have had nothing but excellent service and products from Interstate.
A great product at a great price.
I personally prefer the cast acrylic tube compared to the extruded because it is great for drilling and it handles heat better. Plus you cant see the extrusion lines in the cast tubes.
Have Bought Several of these for Hydrogen generation devices, Very good to work with. Fast shipping and they really protect your order when shipping. thanks Interstate. Expect allot more business from me.
I bought this for my Tesla Coil - perfect! Super easy to drill and cut and will most certainly order again.
I placed my order online and someone at interstate called to verify what I was using the material for. They told me this wasn't the best material to use for my needs and they helped me figure out exactly what I should use. Great professionalism and I appreciate the extra effort. Lots of other companies would just ship it without a second thought. Thank you for all the help.
