Polycarbonate Sheet, 3/8" Thick
Need something clear, strong, and almost unbreakable? This
material is 200-250 times stronger than glass! Known by trade names
such as Lexan, Tuffak, Makrolon, and Hyzod. High tensile strength. Clear,
strong, and tough. Excellent for windows in high-crime areas. Easy machining.
Tolerances: Thickness +/- 10%. Length and width +/- 1/4". When we buy 48" X 96" sheets from the manufacturer, they give us a tolerance of +/- 1/4" on length and width. We also use a 3/16" thick blade to cut heavy materials, which reduces the finished size of your sheet. Sheets under 48" X 96" will likely be under, not over. We will be happy to quote a price for sheets that you require to be at or over the specified size.
Dimensions given in inches unless otherwise specified.

Custom Cut Information:
We now custom cut at a
small additional charge, $1.00 per piece. Here's how to get it done:
1). Choose the stock size that is larger than the size you need and enter
the quantity. Click "add to cart"
2). In the text box BELOW the item on the checkout page,
write the size that you would like it cut to. Specify the size in whole
and fractional INCHES. Example: 23 X 16-1/4. No need to put inch marks
("). We will consider all figures to be inches-DO NOT SPECIFY IN FEET.
Do not put any other information in the text box, only the size.
3). Checkout, or continue shopping. Thats it! We will custom cut it to
your specified size, we keep any cutoff pieces.
A). We will not cut a piece into many smaller pieces, we will only reduce
it to one size. We keep any cutoffs. We cannot do shapes other than
a square or rectangle.
B.) Except as noted
above, cutting tolerance is +/- 1/16". This means that your piece may be
over or under your requested size by 1/16". Note that the initial tolerance
of the piece we begin with is +/- 1/4", which may affect your requested
size. As an example, say you wanted our 1/4 X 24 X 24 custom cut to 24 X
19. Since the piece we start with is already 1/4" undersize due to the initial
tolerance, we are cutting from a piece that is actually 23-3/4 X 23-3/4.
Therefore, the piece we send you will be actually 23-3/4 X 19. If it had
to be exactly 24, you would have to order a larger size. We cannot accept
returns because you failed to recognize this, so please be sure!
C). Edges are sawcut.
We do not finish edges. Because of tolerance
and thickness variations, do not expect all pieces to fit together properly
if you are building a box, aquarium, etc. Finish sizing is up to you.
D). If you are ordering
MANY of the same item and only want SOME of them custom cut, enter them
separately. For example, if you want 5 pieces 24 X 24 but only need 2 of
them custom cut, place '2' in the quantity box, add it to your cart, then
specify the custom size. Then go back to that page and put '3' in the
quantity box and add it to your cart.
E). Cutting charges will
