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
HDPEER SH - Overview

5% Boron HDPE radiation shielding sheets are specially designed for nuclear shielding applications. They are composed of 5% Boron by weight, while the rest of the sheet is made of HDPE. The Boron in these sheets shields against neutrons in a wide array of applications, including X-rays, nuclear submarines, cancer treatment facilities, and nuclear power plants. At a lower cost and lighter weight than lead, HDPE radiation shielding sheets can be used to replace lead in nuclear shielding applications. Available as a Mil-P-23536 certified and inspected material.

  • Lower cost than lead
  • Lighter weight than lead
  • Replaces lead in nuclear shielding applications
  • 5% boron by weight - HDPE base material
  • Can be certified to Mil-P-23536 A Type B (1/2%, 1%, or 2% Boron by weight)
  • Mil-P-23536 certified material is inspected per Mil-I-45208 A
