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).
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®.
HDPE features high impact strength, moisture, stain, and odor resistances, and is FDA approved to be used in the food processing industry. HDPE will not splinter, rot or absorb harmful bacteria, and is extremely resistant to cleaning agents.
HDPE's durability, versatility and high tolerances to many substances and environments make it an outstanding material for a wide variety of applications. HDPE has a low coefficient of friction and can be easily cut, machined, welded, and thermoformed for easy fabrication.
With a low coefficient of friction, long term durability, 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.
