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.
LDPE (Low Density Polyethylene)-the first developed polyethylene-is characterized by its toughness and flexibility, low heat resistance, low-temperature impact resistance, and transparency. Like the medium and high-density grades, LDPE has good resistance to chemical attack. At room temperature, it is insoluble in most organic solvents but is attacked by strong oxidizing acids. At higher temperatures, it becomes increasingly more susceptible to attack by aromatic, chlorinated and aliphatic hydrocarbons. LDPE is used for prosthetic devices and in manufacturing containers, dispensing bottles, wash bottles, tubing, plastic bags and computer components.
LDPE sheets are known for low temperature flexibility, toughness and corrosion resistance. Ease of fabrication and a low cost factor make this material the ideal choice for many applications. It is not suited for applications where stiffness, high temperature resistance and structural strength are required. Polyethylene is susceptible to stress cracking when exposed to ultraviolet light and some chemicals. Wetting agents such as detergents accelerate stress cracking. Some copolymers of LDPE are available with improved stress-crack resistance.

We've asked Interstate for some time now on help with injection molding to which they aren't very responsible. However, we have been purchasing PE and LDPE for years and have experienced consistent pricing and easy transactions. They are easy to work with and we hope to continue to.
We were thoroughly pleased by Interstate Plastic's professional service. They are extremely knowledgeable and went the extra mile to deliver. Great all around and the LDPE is perfect for our needs.
Fast shipping and perfect communication. They led me to exactly the material I needed. The LDPE is reasonably priced and I would definitely buy from them again.
Ordered from Interstate for the first time and we are really happy with the service and the product. Thanks!
Easy, cut to the size we need, we can order online and not deal with any middle man. Its a great service!
We work with packaging and food storage applications. The LDPE is has perfect required flexibility for vacuum forming. Interstate has proven a reliable supplier.
Bought some for a lab project...minor delay in shipping but customer service was good about keeping me informed.
