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

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).

UHMUVHTSH - Overview

Interstate Plastics proudly offers UHMW Tivar® HPV, a high performance UHMW bearing grade material - the leading no-slip material for extreme wear applications. Tivar® HPV is a dry-running sliding material designed to enhance motion and reduce friction among conveying systems and bearings.

Lowest Friction Available
Tivar® HPV features the lowest Coefficient of Friction (COF) available for any UHMW grade, due in part to a specialized built-in dry lubricant formula. The sliding advantage produced from the dry lubricant generates a smoother, quieter operation without the need of extra product. It also ensures improved sliding behavior by offering a near-zero level of slip-stick and by eliminating backsliding issues that occur in production environments that experience high-pressure conditions. Tivar® HPV also offers precise motion control and eliminates squeaking and chatter.

Energy and Cost Efficient
The top-priority factor modern mechanical designers and operators face is to provide conveying equipment that will offer the best results. Due to its high-quality production, Tivar® HPV is both energy and cost efficient. The elevated sliding performance reduces friction forces during operation, minimizing both energy consumption and risk of costly damages.

Conveyor System Solutions
Tivar® HPV UHMW conveyor systems surpass other standardized conveyor systems in nearly every metric. Our systems are guaranteed to meet all your plastics needs. Durable, FDA compliant, fully washable and far more efficient than other UHMW material grades.

Improved Product Safety
Along with longer productive cycles between maintenance and shorter down times, your system runs smoother with less interruption. With an extremely long life cycle the safety and return on your investment improves. A smoother running system reduces chance of failure which could lead to injury.
