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).
Sanitizing Acrylic and Polycarbonate Sheet [X]
Acrylic and Polycarbonate Sneeze Guards and like products require special care while cleaning and disinfecting. To maintain the optical clarity of sneeze guards and other acrylic or polycarbonate items, use an acrylic or polycarbonate safe cleaner like Novus Plastic Polish #1, Brillianize Plastic Cleaner, or a mild soap solution.
Please reference the following compatible cleaners when DISINFECTING acrylic and polycarbonate items. The use of commonly available commercial alcohol or ammonia-based disinfectants may cause crazing and damage.
NorPLY™ 1002 is a cured glass epoxy composite material with excellent fatigue resistance. Designed for higher performance and longer application life, NorPLY™ outlasts competing composite materials and is a superior replacement for steel in fatigue intensive components such as vibratory springs. NorPLY™ may provide anywhere from 10% to 60% component weight reduction when replacing steel parts and offers greater energy storage capacity than even 1060 spring steel.
This material is suitable for harsh environments and has high dimensional stability in cold, hot, wet, and dry conditions. It resists both chemicals and corrosion and cannot rust. NorPLY™ was previously known by the brand names ScotchPLY and CyPLY®.
NorPLY™ uses continuous E-glass filaments in a unique non-woven parallel filament composition that helps minimize the risk of fracturing during machining and reduces filament stress that may shorten fatigue life in reinforced plastic materials.
NorPLY™ FP-513, 517, 518, 521, and 525 are offered in spring ply, unidirectional orientation.
Superior energy storage capacity compared to 1060 spring steel
Anywhere from 10% to 60% component weight reduction vs. steel
High strength-to-weight performance
Reduced downtime in harsh environments
Allows for increased design options, including springs and rail joints
High strain capability
Low notch sensitivity
Resistant to cleaning fluids
