plastic sheet supplier2/23/21
Recently, I cut a few sink templates on the cnc for a local granite shop to use on a machine they have to cut sink holes into stone. I just used plywood scraps knowing they will eventually fall apart from the water exposure. Does anyone know of a source for a reasonably priced plastic sheet material that would be a better, more durable material? Or any other ideas of materials for this job??
Your location and local access will be the main issue as shipping small(ish) quantities of anything is not practical. You need to look in your local area or do distributor searches with compaines like King, Vycom, Royal, Azek, Versatex, and the list goes on.
What you need is to find a stocking distributor of the material near enough to you that you can get truck delivery on their route as opposed to having to freight in a sheet or two of material.
If the templates are small they may be open to solid surface but if you need anything larger than 30" wide on your material you'll be in full sheet sizes.
Reasonably price and plastic hardly ever appear in the same sentence. Also sales of acrylic has skyrocketed for use as Covid guards. Maybe the cheapest place would be a plastic floor guard for office chairs, but that is likely 1/4" thick. You don't give any size information at all. If you need 3/4", reasonable is definitely out the window. Maybe the countertop guy can find you some damaged Corian.
Home Depot's stores in my area always have some white plastic sheets in several sizes and thicknesses up to 4' x 8'.
Something like on this link:
Try King Plastics, they retail some less expensive alternatives
I'd be looking at solid phenolic. Check to see who in your area sells toilet partitions and see if they have damaged ones that you could buy off of them.
