Each plastic product comes in a variety of grades allowing you to select the best option to meet your application requirements. Top material grades include general purpose (GP), abrasion resistant (AR), bearing grades, glass filled (GF), flame retardant, low flammability, UV resistant, and FDA compliant.

Colored Plastic Sheets. Decorative colored plastic sheets populates our retail spaces and storefronts with durable and distinct plastic materials for eye-catching indoor and outdoor signage, printing, and display graphics. KYDEX Thermoplastic Sheet color possibilities are limitless with a variety of finish and texture offerings to complement any design. Often, KYDEX sheet replaces high-pressure laminated sheet (HPL) for medical furniture or countertops. Colored plastic sheet materials that meet FDA requirements for direct and indirect food contact are used for commercial and industrial cutting boards and machine parts.

Plastic sheets range in various thickness, sizes, and even shapes to suit the application. From 0.06 inch to 6 inches, with some custom sizes available, common thicknesses range from 0.25 in, 0.5 in, 0.75 in, and 1 inch up to 6 inches.

Why not save time and money and have plastic sheets cut-to-size? Our CNC panel saws and manual cutting equipment are capable of custom cutting any type of plastic sheet to the finished sizes you need.

Plastic Sheeting comes in a wide range of thicknesses. It is rated with the term, "mil". A mil is a measurement that equals one-thousandth of an inch, or 0.001 inch. Most human hair is One-thousandth of inch, or 0.001 inch. The most common size in the thickness rating for plastic sheeting is 6 mil. This is 6-thousandths of an inch, or 0.006 inch. Generally, the thicker the plastic, the stronger it is. If it has string/scrim reinforcement, then the string within the plastic will give it added strength. Depending on the application, the composition of the plastic can play a big role regardless of the thickness. For example, additives added to the plastic such as the fire retardant additive may play a more significant role than the thickness of the plastic if the job requires FR/ flame retardant plastic.

Note that the term " heavy gauge" plastic is not to be confused with "heavy mil" referring to heavy plastic sheeting. The term "gauge" refers to the thickness of metal. It really doesn't apply to plastic sheeting/ plastic sheets.

Heavy Duty Plastic Sheeting- what is it? It first boils down to what job will the plastic sheeting be required to perform? A six mil reinforced film can be considered "heavy duty" when it is used to cover a desk to keep it clear of dust. That same "heavy duty sheet" would not be strong enough to line a landfill. Understanding the strength and thickness of the film, its composition and additives and chemical make-up as well as the job it has to perform will help determine if a film is fit for the job at hand. It is critical that the film not only be assessed on its mil thickness. For example, if the film is in the sun, it needs UV protection additives to maintain its strength.

Being prepared with the right products is necessary to ensure the success of your next project. When it comes to plastic sheeting, there are many variables, including the thickness of the sheet. Most construction and greenhouse plastic sheeting thicknesses start at 4 mil and go all the way up to 20 mil for the heaviest duty strength. It is essential to be fully educated about which thickness is the best fit for your project.

6 mil plastic sheeting is usually an excellent sheeting thickness for tasks such as covering items during a remodel, construction enclosures, remediation covers, and even greenhouse covers. We offer our 6 Mil Temporary Greenhouse Cover as a solution for short-term coverage during the winter or rainy season. Our other products include our 6 Mil Dura Skrim Reinforced which is ideal for building enclosures, temporary walls or erosion control, and lightweight crawl space encapsulation. This sheeting is available in multiple colors and thicknesses and comes equipped with UV stabilizers for short- to mid-term outdoor use. 6 mil generally works well indoors and outdoors and in various temperatures ranging from extremely cold to extremely hot.

Manufactured of HDPE, this ultra thick plastic weed barrier is designed for heavy duty landscape applications where serious weed prevention is required. Typical plastic weed barriers are often thin, easy punctured and fail under areas of major weed infestation. Designed for maximum puncture resistance, our plastic weed barrier is difficult to puncture in the 30 and 40 mil thicknesses and nearly impossible in the 60-100 mill thicknesses. Our plastic weed barrier is available in various thickness ranging from 30 mil to 100 mil. Typical weeds are contained with the 30 mil barrier however in more demanding situations a thicker plastic may be necessary.

Note: Because this plastic is very thick it will not conform to the landscape as typical thin weed barrier plastics do. This can create an issue in areas where the dirt which or gravel which is placed over the fabric is disturbed on a regular basis. As the plastic is slippery this can lead to the ground covering becoming exposed. This plastic is ideally used in an area where minimal foot traffic or disruption is expected to the dirt or gravel which is placed to cover the plastic.

Tolerances for acrylic sheet thickness can range between +10% and - 10% . These can differ throughout the plexiglass panel, but variations are typically less than 5%. Nominal and actual sheet thicknesses can be found below:

Plexiglass can be cut by hand using a scoring knife or a Dremel tool. In both instances, you would use a marker or ruler to indicate where you intend to cut it. To cut the material with a scoring knife, you should make a small cut in the marked area. Then place the sheet on a table with the marked side facing up. Bend the acrylic over the edge to cut the acrylic sheet. For a Dremel, you should clamp the material down and slowly make the cut. Water will help ensure that the Dremel does not overheat and ruin the plastic. Sand the acrylic after for a smooth edge. More detailed instructions can be found here.

As Washington transitions away from single-use plastic bags, we will continue to provide technical assistance, education, and outreach materials to businesses and the public. We collaborated with local governments, retailers, business associations, and non-profits to begin this effort, and have developed a bag ban outreach toolkit that is formatted for accessibility and available in 17 languages.

  • Who does the ban apply to?All retail, grocery, and convenience stores

  • Any restaurant or establishment offering take-out or delivery food or goods

  • Temporary stores or vendors

  • Any event where food or goods are sold or distributed

What kind of bags are banned?Any single-use, plastic carryout bag provided at delivery, check stand, cash register, point of sale, or other point of departure to a customer.

A mil is a measurement that equals one-thousandth of an inch, or 0.001 inch. One mil also equals 0.0254 mm (millimeter). Reusable plastic bags sold for 8 cents under the new bag ban are required to be at least 2.25 mil, and this requirement will increase to 4 mil beginning in 2026.

  • Who does the ban apply to?All retail, grocery, and convenience stores

  • Any restaurant or establishment offering takeout or delivery food or goods

  • Temporary stores or vendors

  • Any event where food or goods are sold or distributed

What carryout paper bags are allowed?The bag ban requires businesses to charge 8 cents for large paper carry-out bags (1/8 barrel paper bags 882 cubic inches or larger). Smaller paper bags may be provided without charging the 8 cents, but all paper bags must be made of at least 40% post-consumer recycled content and/or wheat straw and be labeled with this percentage on the outside of the bag.

Paper bags must contain at least 40% post-consumer recycled content, 40% wheat straw, or a combination of these materials equal to 40%. The percentage of this content must be printed somewhere on the exterior of the bag.

Should a question arise, retailers must be prepared to show that the bags they are using are at least 2.25 mils thick and are labeled with the mil thickness somewhere on the exterior of the bag. In January 2026, the minimum thickness requirement will increase from 2.25 mil to 4 mil. 041b061a72
