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.

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)
Great prices but I wish they had more textures available. We buy a good amount of the op3/p99
on time and good service
Good selection and a very helpful staff.
IP had a nicely organized site and all the items have image and complete descriptions. Their selection of tubes covered what I needed. Checkout process was super easy.
We love how durable these tubes are. Stronger and better than glass. Use and reuse them as needed.
I bought this material to use as centerpieces for a wedding. all the guests thought they were made of glass. They turned out beautiful and I was able to keep it under budget. Thank you for the recommendation and the quick delivery Interstate
This product is exactly as described and better! Durable, strong, clear as glass and up to the task!
I placed an order for a 6 foot acrylic tube and I was notified of the size restriction. They were friendly enough to cut my 6 foot tube into 18" pieces to avoid an additional shipping charge. thanks for keeping your customers in mind!
I bought several feet of this for a custom LED car display worked like a champ and was much cheaper than the polycarbonate option - Customer service was great in explaining my options
