Default OT: Anyone in the Plastic Supply Industry??

I have been looking around the net with out much luck, so i figured i post here since i usually get answers quicker though you guys/girls .

I am looking for a Low Density Polyethelyne material in multiple colors (black,red,blue,grey,yellow). The reason for that particular Poly is only because of the high impact, and easy machinability properties (and the low cost - as compared to nylon). I need 1" thick plates.

If anyone knows where to find this material in colors, or knows of a similar material that does come in colors, Holler Back!!

Thanks

I talked to KingPlastics. They told me it can come in colors, but it has to be purchased in large minimum qauntities...and they only sell to distributers.

I buy my plastic through McMaster-Carr, who uses KingPlastics. King told me to ask McMaster if they carry colored Poly...they don't.

Try Ben Benvenuti @ Commercial Plastics - (813) 248-4212.

Tell him that his attorney, Bryan, recommended you call... he may be able to help - deals alot in surplus, spec, off-spec and recycled materials.
