Custom Cut Plexiglass
The plastic experts at ePlastics® are proud to offer full service plastic fabrication services from conceptualization through fabrication and special delivery. We have a large warehouse filled with specialized machinery and trained fabricators that work with plastic sheet, rod, and tube for special order parts every day. This includes custom cutting into any shape or size as required by your project. We can cut to tolerances as close as 0.005", and have fabrication specialists that can assemble just about any plastic part that you can draw up.
We sell all of our material in the sizes listed below. If you need custom shapes, sizes, holes, mills, etc. then simply explain this in the cutting box area and add a cutting charge (varies depending on the number of cuts). If you are looking for a 100% custom job or need more information than what is offered here then please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Common custom plastic orders include items such as display cases, oversize mirrors, patio tabletops, and more. We stock up to 4" thick sheets to handle most applications, and can special order thicker sheets when you need them. Our extruded acrylic sheets are more impact resistant and half the weight of glass. They also meet the requirements of ANSI Z97.1 for use as a safety glazing material.
Cutting a full size sheet saves a lot of money on shipping costs since it offers a more economical means of packaging, and opens up ground delivery options. If you have any questions on how to order, see this page.
Thickness tolerances are +/- 10% on acrylic sheets and can vary throughout the sheet. Normally we see variations less than 5%. Sheets sizes can vary from the manufacturer and some are cut from larger sheets. Because of this, the sheet dimensions that are delivered are nominal and might be +/- saw cut.
