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.
Expanded Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) is a durable, lightweight alternative to traditional PVC, known for a closed-cellular inner core produced via air injection during manufacturing. Expanded PVC has an extraordinary combination of features that make it ideal for signage, exhibits, store displays, POP, kiosks, screen printing and more. The surface is a smooth matte finish that makes it ideal to paint or laminate. Sheets are tough, high-strength and lightweight, and can be ordered in a wide range of sizes, thicknesses and colors. Celtec Expanded PVC sheets are free of lead, cadmium, barium and zinc, and have passed all three UL 1975 requirements. Celtec PVC is recommended for industrial and commercial signage. It readily accepts virtually any form of graphic overlay (print, paint and photo mounting). Celtec PVC is also easy to cut and shape, making it a strong choice for three-dimensional exhibits, displays and stage sets.
Most PVC produced goes into building and construction applications such pipe, siding, and window profiles. PVC has a great resistance to oils and a low permeability to gases. It is ideally suited for applications where maximum chemical resistance is necessary. Sheets can be welded to produce tanks, trays and troughs. Packaging is another major market for PVC plastic. Rigid grades are blown into bottles and made into sheet for thermoforming boxes and blister packs. Flexible compounds are made into food wrap. Other markets for PVC plastics include wire and cable coating, flooring, garden hose, and toys.

Pipes: sanitary, sewer, water supply, reinforcement, drainage, gutters, downspouts
Electrical cable insulation
Painted wood substitute
Leather-like substitute in clothing
Really cool material for creating signs. Holds paint well. We use them here at this sign shop, but I've used it to help the kids with some arts and crafts. Endless possibilities :)
Used this PVC in the construction of an exhibit and it was very easy to work with. It arrived in perfect condition which was important for our visual needs. Thanks Interstate!
Perfect colour match and exactly the same as the brand name as far as we can tell.
