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).

UHMBVE SH - Overview

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.

UHMW's anti-static sheet is the ideal product for applications where static electricity tends to pose problems in manufacturing environments. With a surface resistance of 105 to 109 (ohms/cm2), anti-static UHMW handles tough conditions where dust and static electricity tend to arise, including those in grain elevators and munition plants, effectively safeguarding your materials against static discharges. With high levels of heat and corrosion resistances, UHMW anti-static sheets protect robotics and other products that are sensitive to dust accumulation and electrical charge buildup.

UHMW anti-static sheet is self-lubricating, features no moisture absorption and is available in sheet, rod, board and profiles.

Anti-static UHMW can move products more safely in potentially volatile environments, such as munitions plants, grain handling facilities and explosive assembly facilities (air-bags) where a spark can cause a dust explosion. Anti-static UHMW protects products sensitive to build-up of electrical charges.

Surface Resistance
Modified to exhibit anti-static properties, its surface resistance ranges from 105 to 109 (ohms/cm2). Anti-static UHMW is available in sheet, rod, board and profiles and is compounded for situations where dust and static electricity pose significant problems.

Low Coefficient of Friction
Anti-static UHMW 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.

Self-Lubricating Formula
High durability, low friction and wear resistance are key reasons why anti-static UHMW is the material of choice for a myriad of applications. Anti-static UHMW 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. Anti-static UHMW’s self-lubricating formula helps to extend part life because the internal lubricant ensures that parts will not break or need replacement.
