Product Description

The opaque white UHMW sheet has a standard tolerance and meets American Society for Testing and Materials ASTM D4020 specifications. UHMW (ultra high molecular weight) polyethylene is an impact-, chemical-, and moisture-resistant plastic that has excellent abrasion resistance and a low-friction surface. UHMW is more rigid than LDPE and HDPE, and has better abrasion resistance than PTFE.

Plastic refers to a group of synthetic or semi-synthetic materials that have been engineered to achieve specific properties. The most notable characteristics of plastics are its low weight, machinability, corrosion resistance, and typically good thermal and electrical insulating properties. Certain plastic grades also offer optical transparency similar to glass, low-friction or self-lubricating surfaces, and exceptional impact resistance. Depending on their properties, certain plastic grades can be used as alternatives to metal, glass, and ceramic. Unlike metal, plastic may experience creep, which is deformation caused by longtime exposure to a constant load.

Tensile strength, used to indicate the material’s overall strength, is the peak stress it can withstand before it breaks. Corrosion resistance describes the material's ability to prevent deterioration caused by atmosphere, moisture, or other medium. Wear resistance indicates the ability to prevent surface damage caused by contact with other surfaces. Toughness describes the material's ability to absorb energy before breaking, while hardness (commonly measured as indentation hardness) describes its resistance to permanent surface deformation. Impact resistance is the measure of a material’s ability to absorb a shock of energy before breaking.

I don't think it will be satiable for this application.
Jeff
The sheet was bowed, had very large gouges and scratches, and was ver dirty.
Brad Carter
It is easy to cut with a scroll saw, requiring no special blade.

i was hoping to use this for jigs adn fixtures in my woodshop..
but its nowhere near flat, i've got it sandwiched between MDF with weights on it now to see if it helps...would not recommend.

I needed some UHMW to make a router fence. This is good stuff. I thought it was a little warped but realized that the material, by nature, tends to deform. If you take a piece of it and force it into a new shape, it'll hold the shape...

For what it's worth, it cuts fine on the table saw, on the router table, on the jointer, etc. Just don't let it burn (obviously) - other than that, it's a snap to machine into whatever you need it for around the shop.

This item was not flat, was bowed a lot. It was shipped separately laying on a lot of crumbled filler packing paper. Maybe it would have arrived flatter if it had been laying flat in the box.

Bought this UHMW to make zero-clearance table saw inserts. I don't think it will be satiable for this application. I heated the sheet up with a heat gun and laid a heavy box on top during cool down. Most of the bow was gone but not sure if it will stay that way over time. Still not flat enough for saw table inserts. Affixing the cut sheet to a ridged surface such as a table saw or router fence and jigs would work better providing the edges and corners stay flat.

UHMW is a good product, the flatness is just too unstable for my application. I may order some Phenolic 'glass grade' sheet in this size but it will cost much more.

The actual size of the sheet was 1/8" x 11 3/4" x 23 3/4".

Depending on your particular application, this material deserves consideration. It's strong enough to thread screws into, non-conductive, and cuts with any decent saw. I used it to make the front for a switch panel, and it's just what the doctor ordered. Since it's translucent, you can even backlight it with a simple light bulb. Really cool...

For those who don't know, longboarding can involve speeds in excess of 35 MPH. Speed control and cornering is often accomplished by sliding the board wheels and one or both hands on the pavement. The gloves that are used have a palm puck to take the abrasion and dissipate heat. The best gloves have a replaceable puck. Combined with sticky back industrial strength Velcro and Weldwood contact cement, this UHMW at three-quarters of an inch thick is perfect when applied to the leather glove of your choice. I have tested it at over 40 MPH and it shows very little wear (looks more scratched than worn). It is easy to cut with a scroll saw, requiring no special blade. Sanding is no problem with an random orbital sander. The pucks are cut to a 3" diameter circle. At that rate the one foot square will provide me with replaceable pucks for years!

Overall Width: 12Number of Items: 1Overall Length: 12Thickness: 1/2 Verified Purchase
In the product description it said
"Exterior Finish Smooth"
which indicated to me that the top and bottom of the sheet
would be smooth. But when I received it there were saw lines
running through the face on both sides, enough that you not only
could see them but feel them easily with you fingers, very rough lines.
I expected that there may be some rough saw lines on the 1/2" edges
but not on both the 12"X12" face surfaces.
I had to sand both sides down to use for my application,
and this stuff is pretty tough and it wasn't all that easy to do.
If the description had said
'Exterior Finish Rough' I would have either looked elsewhere or ordered HDPE
which is a little easier to work with and could have sanded it a little easier.
So if you need the face of both sides smooth like I did this is not for you.
Don't expect the faces to be smooth as the description indicates.

This came far from flat which may have been fine, but it also measures 11.75"x11.75"......not 12'x12". It was 1/4" thick which was about the only correct part of the description

Sheet was exactly as listed but had one side with a few rough marks. They did not look like shipping dents but appeared to be from storage or manufacturing. I only need one good side so not a large problem for me but something to be aware of.
