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).
Cast nylon is one of the oldest and most widely used engineered mechanical plastics. Its combination of toughness, dimensional stability, wear resistance, availability, and versatility make it a natural choice for informed engineers looking to improve their project. Cast nylon has served well in replacing many metals and offers a design choice when noise reduction and long life are important.
Cast nylon is a tough, stable engineering thermoplastic with a high modulus of elasticity, high strength, good rigidity, dimensional stability, resistance to moisture, solvents and other chemicals. It performs significantly better than copolymers in toughness at extreme temperatures, fatigue endurance, and elongation at yield. Common applications include precision gears, bearings with close tolerances, electrical engineering insulators, snap fit assemblies, and parts operating in a hot water environment.

Nylon in non-fibrous castable form is used almost exclusively for mechanical purposes such as gears and sprockets. In fibrous forms, Nylon has many textile applications.
Would definitely consider this over GSM for low friction uses. Interstate Plastics is super helpful. And they offer a lot of valuable advice!
Too many options very confusing. I had to call in and order over the phone.
slow shipping - hard to figure out id and od option
Large selection of sizes with great customer service to back it up
TONS of options, great material. Easy to work with staff. I'm pleased with everything.
My issue is not with the nylon but with the lack of working with my on a prototype project we have. I felt they didnt truley care whether the plastic worked for me or not, like a sort of on your own attitude.
thanks for the team work on helping us get the right plastic and everything sorted out for the project - great service from these kind folks
Long lead time, long shipping time. Not impressed. Material was fine.
Expensive but Interstate Plastics is reliable and supportive. Couldn't be more simple to order. over 5 years ordering from them and never a problem.
The material is machinable and cuts well on the table saw and band saw. Will order more.
Fast shipping, great customer service. Rod arrived dirty but wasnt a big problem. Works great.
We needed some rubber parts replaced and the sales rep suggested using this plastic. It was a good suggestion. It worked out great.
They are serious when they say this tubing is strong. It is holding up better than anything else we have used.
Interstate has great people working for them. I have called in with product questions a few times and each time customer service is a pleasure to work with.
Great product and reliable service from Interstate Plastics. Will continue to order through them in the future.
Good selection of sizes, and you can actually call and they have more they can order.
Interstate does a good job in shipping the nylon with consideration for extremely large ODs.
A wide variety of stock. No picture, but you can be assured its a great product.
I bought this to machine out for a bore housing case for an actuator- needed expedited shipping and the customer service was great in working with me on this.
We were very concerned about potential damage from shipping. Thank you guys for listening to our request, it came in safe and sound.
