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).

Clear Polycarbonate tube is a very durable material. Although it has high impact-resistance, it has low scratch-resistance and so a hard coating can be applied for added protection. Polycarbonate characteristics are quite like those of polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA, ACRYLIC), but polycarbonate is stronger, usable in a wider temperature range.
Polycarbonate is a versatile, tough plastic used for a variety of applications, from bulletproof windows to compact disks (CDs). It comes in transparent and opaque varieties.

It's fine but overpriced. Not thrilled on price by any means.
strong, sturdy and easy shipping
Strong material. great price. a+
Strong material. Shipping price high. Good service. Helpful.
The website made it easy to order online with so many sizing options available. The polycarb was well protected when it arrived and was damage free. I had emailed asking for an update on the processing of my order, and the response took a while. I actually received the material the day after they got back to me. But all in all a good experience.
Solid tubing, easy to use website. Would purchase again. I like that they pick up the phone on the first ring.
If this isn't plexiglass, I sure as hell don't know what the difference could be. Better pricing, better shipping, and easy to restock.
We love how easy it is to purchase off this website. Our orders always arrive on time and in mint condition. This is a great business to buy from.
I just purchased 6 ft. of polycarbonate tubing elsewhere for about $12.00 and it is shipping today. I'll have to cut it but that doesn't take a rocket scientist to do it.
You guys seriously have the best value when I order, just wish that you had a distribution center closer to me but it's worth it to wait.
I bought a box of this for my custom autoshop, this stuff works great for LED light houseings. One thing though, call to ask for minimums as I was informed that the manufacturer has a large minimum!
I used this to fill that annoying gap between my kitchen countertops and my refrigerator. This was so easy to order, plus I was updated when it shipped which was really nice. The best part was I could ask for a specific size so I didn't have to cut it myself!
I am a 1st grade teacher and wanted something like this to use in the classroom for a project. I wasn't sure what size I needed to order so I called in and asked to speak to someone. I got transferred right to sales and the gentleman that helped me was so friendly and helpful! I loved that I wasn't transferred around multiple times and that they were able to help me right then and there. Very helpful and a quick process. Thanks!!
