The above ranges of plastic strips have different attributes for individual requirements. At RH Nuttall we have an in house cutting facility that can not only supply plastic strip by the coil or metre, but also cut to most lengths for certain plastic pad sizes that might be required.
Grades of plastic strip
Different grades of plastic strip can be supplied for individual needs. Our range of PTFE strips offers high temperature sealing properties for example. Nylon strip or acetal strip generally have higher load bearing properties and therefore are used on more rugged applications such as wear strips or impact projects.
Polycarbonate strips offer cost effective and suitable replacement for glass, giving a transparent finish and durable strip, but at a fraction of the cost of glass. Calculator or display screens on machinery often contain our polycarbonate strips. The thickness of plastic strip supplied varies depending on the base material chosen but can come as thin as 0.25mm.
Our common plastic strips are supplied in 0.5mm, 0.8mm, 1mm, 1.5mm, 2mm, 3mm, 5mm, and right up to 10mm in thickness. Automatic guillotine type machinery is then used to cut to any given width required.
Small and large scale runs of plastic strips
At RH Nuttall we manufacture small one off batches to multi thousand metre runs of plastic strips. State of the art slitting and guillotine machinery allows for widths of plastic strips to start from 10mm wide, and we are capable of producing sections up to and including 1500mm wide. Our cut plastic strip is then coiled into suitable lengths, and can even be supplied in cut lengths if desired.
Plastic strip samples
Samples of our plastic strips can be made and sent off to you free of charge to test on your application prior to committing to a bulk order.
Standard plastic strips
Common sections of plastic strip are widely available including most increments of 10mm in width and 1mm upwards in thickness. Lengths are normally dictated by sheet or roll sizes and/or customer preference.
Bespoke plastic strips
Bespoke plastic strips are also manufactured by RH Nuttall Limited. If you have a certain application that doesn’t lend itself to a standard size of plastic strip, then why not try enquiring today for the exact size you require. At RH Nuttall Limited we can produce cut lengths to fit a particular design, or even supply full rolls to suit individual needs.
Self-adhesive plastic strips
A self-adhesive backing can be added to any of our plastic strips making third hand fixing far easier. Normally applied to one face with a peel away liner, our range of self-adhesive plastic strips is endless.
