We stock acrylic in clear, colored, mirrored, translucent, or opaque in over 35 colors. A number of coatings can be applied to a sheet or finished product for the purpose of UV filter, non-glare, and scratch resistance. Acrylic has numerous applications, for instance, windows, display cases and everything in between. It is Ideal for P-O-P displays, store fixtures, and general fabrication. Acrylic sheet offers manufacturers, fabricators, and designers a product with exceptional strength, formability, and durability. Can be used indoors and outdoors and will not yellow. It is easily cut and cemented.
PETG is a thin, flexible plastic material that can be used for many applications such as stencils and framing. It is a transparent thermoplastic commonly used in the point of purchase industry. This material die cuts and punches with ease and bonds, fastens, welds and rivets extremely well. Additionally, it can be painted, decorated, hot stamped, silk screened, fabricated and formed. Among its advantages, PETG offers superior impact strength over acrylic and cost-effectiveness compared to polycarbonate. Typical applications include video tape shelves, greeting card displays, revolving merchandise racks, indoor signs, point of purchase displays, menu displays, photo frames and slat wall inventory displays.
Sheets and rods
The toughest of the clear plastics. Polycarbonate is a highly durable, high-performance thermoplastic. It is dimensionally stable, extremely impact resistant and has excellent optical properties. Polycarbonate is highly transparent with a greater light transmission than many types of glass. For use in high impact and durability applications when standard acrylic is not enough.
Widely used for forming machine parts and housings. ABS is used for constant wear and tear applications in all climates. Even though ABS plastics are used largely for mechanical purposes, they also have electrical properties that are fairly constant over a wide range of frequencies. These properties are little affected by temperature and atmospheric humidity in the acceptable operating range of temperatures.
Sheets, rods, reinforced tubes and vinyl tubes
PVC’s relatively low cost, biological and chemical resistance and workability have resulted in it being used for a wide variety of applications. It is an industrial grade plastic that can be used for ductwork, electrical insulation, and handling corrosive liquids.
Rigid and flexible sheeting. Flexible vinyl strip curtain and sheeting is perfect for industrial freezer/kitchen doors and outdoor patios where protection from the elements is needed.
Sheets and rods
UHMW is an industrial grade plastic that can be used in assembly lines as bushings and wear strips. It is very durable and has self-lubricating and non-stick properties.
Sheets and rods
In the first place, Delrin is a strong, industrial plastic. Delrin acetal homopolymer bridges the gap between metals and ordinary plastics with a unique combination of creep resistance, strength, stiffness, hardness, dimensional stability, toughness, fatigue resistance, solvent and fuel resistance, abrasion resistance, low wear and low friction.
Sheets and Rods.
Available in canvas, linen, and paper-based
A phenolic sheet is a hard, dense material made by applying heat and pressure to layers of paper or glass cloth impregnated with synthetic resin. In fact, these layers of laminations are usually of cellulose paper, cotton fabrics, synthetic yarn fabrics, glass fabrics or unwoven fabrics. Then heat and pressure are applied to the layers, and a chemical reaction (polymerization) transforms them into a high-pressure thermosetting industrial laminated plastic. Phenolic is an industrial grade material used in electrical insulating, gears, router bases, spacers, and bushings. Usually, phenolic is extended by combining it with a filler.
Additionally, phenolics are usually compression molded and they also have good strength and toughness, good arc resistance and other electrical properties, not to mention, good resistance to solvents and high temperatures, and are bargain-priced.
G-10 The most versatile all-around laminate, this grade is a continuous glass woven fabric base impregnated with an epoxy resin binder. It has extremely high mechanical strength, good dielectric loss properties, and good electric strength properties, both wet and dry. G10 is also known as Micarta and Garolite and can be used for structural supports, buss bars, mechanical insulation, gears, test fixtures, washers, spacers and tight tolerance machined parts for electromechanical assemblies.
Sheets and rods
Teflon is an industrial grade material that can be used in extreme temperatures. For this reason, it is ideal for high stress and wear applications such as production lines.
Cutting Board is an exceptionally white natural polyethylene color, creating the bright, clean, sanitary look that commercial food processing operations require. In fact, bacteria, odors and cleaning fluids wash completely off. Cutting Board won’t dull knives like wood. It is made to last in the most demanding commercial environments. Above all, it is easy to clean, easy to maintain, and will not rot or splinter. Furthermore, it complies with the FDA and is tested and certified by the NSF for a sanitary work surface.
Created with a micro-thin cap layer, the Matte product line is certainly perfect for rotary engravers looking to achieve detailed engraving. The Mattes are offered in a non-glare, matte finish that is rich in color and still durable and easy to fabricate.
Dozens of color combinations and a subtle brushed finished make Satins ideal for interior signage, nameplates, and personal identification.
Prismatic lighting panels offer excellent efficiency and direct glare control while providing an attractive appearance. The PL-21 features a 3/16″ square base female conical pattern in order to fit standard ceiling grids for easy installation.
Acrylic eggcrate louvers are available in two thicknesses, 3/8″ and 1/2. The standard size is 2′ x 4′, but it can be cut to smaller sizes. Numerous finishes are available, such as white, black and chrome (silver). Notably, eggcrate louvers play an important role in the lighting, ceiling, elevator cab, display, HVAC and packaging industries.
Tube protectors or safety sleeves are designed to contain glass particles in case of fluorescent lamp failure. They are available in a myriad of colors for decorative purposes. Regardless, many safety codes require covering fluorescent lamps with safety sleeves when used in certain areas. Safety sleeves are typically used in food processing plants, factories, supermarkets, and restaurant kitchens.
