How To Measure and Cut-To-Size Policy [X]

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).

ACEUED - Overview

Blue copolymer acetal is the preferred color and material when it comes to the food processing industry. It provides better visibility of potentially unwanted particulates during processing. A low coefficient of friction (COF) alongside excellent wear properties, especially in wet or moist environments, makes acetal one of the most widely used engineering thermoplastics on the market today, and an ideal fit for food processing environments.Our blue acetal rods are FDA and USDA compliant.

Low Moisture Absorption

Acetal rods are ideal when working in wet environments as they absorbs minimal amounts of moisture, and with a high level of heat resistance, can be heated or cooled without affecting form or dimensionality. Acetal rods are used in hot water applications up to 140°F without any hydrolysis effect. Unlike other materials that may erode from acidic water, hard water does not harm acetal rods.

  • Low stress, cost effective material
  • FDA/USDA compliant
  • Non-porous
  • Consistent properties in wet or moist environments
  • Very low moisture absorption
  • Excellent dimensional stability
