Topic tags/keywords: resource uhmw plastic supplier phenolic

www.usplastic.comUnited States Plastic Corp

Got their (huge 350 page!) catalog a lil while ago, and been browsing the site, they have a massive selection of pretty much anything that is remotely plastic related, as well as a lot of commercial/industrial products, including an awesome selection of UHMW sheets/shapes/tapes (the main reason I was checking them out). Prices and shipping seem pretty reasonable.

Also they have a lot of Phenolic products, the larger sheets were pretty pricey, but the smaller sheets seemed reasonable, dunno how Phenolic plastic compares to phenolic plywood but I was thinking might be good for ZCIs, fence faces, etc. Something to look into anyways.

-- - Jei, Rockford IL - When in doubt, spray it with WD-40 and wrap it with duct tape. The details will attend to themselves.

Jei, here is another good source. They also sell to the public and pricing is not bad.

I have phenolic router table plates. Great stuff. You can thread it, epoxy it, drill it, saw it and shape it. Tough stuff. Will clog a sander, so you need to dress the belt every once and a while. Router leaves the best edge.
