Q: Can I get free samples?
A: Yes. We urge our customers to try samples before purchasing to ensure a perfect fit.
Q: How many samples can you send me?
A: We’ll typically send you 2-3 samples of each part so you can test size, material or colour. If you’re using the samples for prototyping, we can send you a larger supply.

A: All standard sample requests will be processed within 24 hours (business days)
Q: Do you have custom capabilities?
A: Of course. Just give us a call and one of our Technical Engineers will be happy to assist you. Our tooling library is vast and holds thousands of moulds that may fit your needs.

What is the best material and colour for outdoor use?
A: Black vinyl with a UV additive is ideal for outdoor use. For low density polyethylene we recommend the colour black for outdoor applications. This colour offers resistance to UV rays as it acts as a natural UV stabiliser with 2% carbon-loading. Please request assistance from our Technical Sales department for this type of application because there may be other options based on climate.
