How To Measure and Cut-To-Size Policy |
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
1.) 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.
2.) Measure your space by counting the increments beyond the nearest inch. (If your space measures 7 inches plus 8 tick marks, that is 8/16 à 1/2. Your space is 7-1/2" on one side.)
3.) Another example: If your space is 7 inches and 9 marks past that, your material should be 7-9/16".
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).
UHMW (Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene) is a common machinable plastic known for durability, versatility and cost-effectiveness as well as abrasion, impact and chemical resistances. UHMW plastic features a molecular weight that ranges from 3.1 million to 100 million grams per mole, with an abrasion resistance that continues to improve as molecular weight increases.
Tivar® 88 is a specialized grade of UHMW recognized as the worldwide leader of premium lining material for bulk material handling, Due to its especially low coefficient of friction, Tivar® 88 is known for its performance in ensuring flow of bulk solids. Tivar® 88 liners are the ideal solution when you need to reduce or eliminate arching, ratholing, and erratic material flow challenges in bins, bunkers, hoppers, chutes, railcars and more.
Low Coefficient of Friction
Tivar® 88 is used in applications where high levels of friction are likely to arise including conveyor guard rails, augers and wear strips, belt scrapers, chain guides, and idler rollers. Due to an extremely low coefficient of friction, its inherent lubricity minimizes heat-generating friction that tends to gradually destroy steel parts, and ensures smooth, noiseless operation.
High durability, low friction and wear resistance are key reasons why Tivar® 88 is the material of choice for a myriad of applications. Tivar® 88 offers an extremely low coefficient of friction due to a specialized built-in lubricant that replaces unwanted grease and oil. It also enhances efficiency and productivity in many applications. Tivar® 88 self-lubricating formula helps to extend part life because the internal lubricant ensures that parts will not break or need replacement.
