Cut-To-Size Items are Non-Returnable!

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).

Overview Specs & Uses Reviews Inquiry
UHMBV SH - Overview

UHMW (Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene) provided by Interstate Plastics is a common machinable plastic known for durability, versatility and cost-effectiveness as well as abrasion, impact and chemical resistances. Due to an extremely low coefficient of friction, its inherent lubricity minimizes heat-generating friction that tends to gradually destroy steel parts, and ensures smooth, noiseless operation.

Known for an extremely high molecular weight, UHMW features an unsurpassed combination of slickness, toughness and chemical resistance. UHMW's molecular weight ranges from 3.1 million to 100 million grams per mole, with an abrasion resistance that continues to improve as molecular weight increases. Machining UHMW plastic is easy with common woodworking tools, making it extremely cost effective, and it outperforms metal in many applications. High durability, low friction and wear resistance are key reasons why UHMW is the material of choice for many applications. UHMW plastics can be machined into virtually anything from small gears and bearings to huge sprockets. Virgin black UHMW sheet is NOT FDA compliant and should not be used for food processing applications.
