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.

Interstate Plastics is proud to carry High Density Polyethylene (HDPE), a machinable thermoplastic known for its high strength-to-density ratio, long term durability and light weight. HDPE's toughness and flexibility make it one of the most commonly used plastics in the United States today.
HDPE is also known by brand names including King Starboard®, King Starlite®, ColorCore®, Proteus®, PE2Print®, Corrtec®, Playboard® and Designboard®.
Durability HDPE features high impact strength, abrasion, moisture, stain, and odor resistances, and is FDA approved to be used in the food processing industry. HDPE sheets will not splinter, rot or absorb harmful bacteria, and is extremely resistant to cleaning agents.
Machinability HDPE's durability, versatility and high tolerances to many substances and environments make it an outstanding material for a wide variety of applications. HDPE sheets and rods have a low coefficient of friction and can be easily cut, machined, welded, and thermoformed for easy fabrication.
Storage Ability With a low coefficient of friction, long term durability, abrasion resistance as well as high impact strength, it's no wonder HDPE is the product of choice for so many applications within marine biology, packaging, industrial, plumbing, food and beverage, consumer industries and more.
Note: HDPE is an industrial grade plastic with no protective masking. Scratches and scuffs on sheets are considered acceptable and are not a valid reason for returning this material.

Smooth transaction from a good seller, thank you.
Ordering was easy, shipping was fast.
Reliable mechanical plastic with good customer service to back it
lightweight and extremely strong. The chemical resistance is amazing! This can really weather any storm. :)
I used 1/2" and 5/8" HDPE to make a set of soap molds. They've worked beautifully for several months and haven't been affected by the hot lye/oil mixture as it hardens.
Very useful website. Kudos for customer-oriented service: size & pricing info the "other guys" don't have or are willing to provide.
Was a bit confused on how to send over logo information but I was able to call and got help faily quickly.
Good quality, clean well in dishwasher. Pretty durable.
Rigid, good impact resistance and abrasion resistance. What we were looking for.
I purchased this as a temporary weather barrier and it worked great. It was very sturdy and help up throughout my entire project. I am very happy with the quality of material for the cost.
I do a lot of cooking in my home and I wanted to cover a large section of my countertop with a cutting board. A contractor recommended this material to me. I was so happy I could just put in specific measurments-everywhere else online sold in much larger quantities and I was going to have to cut it down. This was so easy to order and it looks wonderful in my kitchen.
