ABS and HDPE prices
February 22, 2007 10:40PM
These are the price quotes I got from Jim at New Image Plastics Manufacturing
(plasticweldingrod.com)

The prices are for 25 lb of 3 mm ABS and for 25 lb of "Pipe grade HDPE" aka
'HDPE, High Molecular Pipe Grade', which is used to repair UHMW objects, I
imagine. I'm not sure if it differs from the HDPE that Zach bought. I'm
assuming it isn't really, and I'm not going to order any just now.

The ABS sounds good. I'll phone in an order tomorrow. Adrian's in for 1kg,
I assume Zach wants 5lb, I want 5lb, and I'll see if one or two of the
forum-goers want any.

nice... thats a good price. $5.24 / lb. for abs. I think I'm going
to start recording these in the wiki so we can keep track.

I will ask him. If he says yes, I'll get some "pipe grade" hdpe as well, it
will be good to compare to the stuff Zach got.

Everyone, please let me know if you want some.

Thank you for straightening that out, Forrest.

I'll will organize a group buy for everyone for ABS and for UHMW. Please
email me with your requests and shipping details. I'm going to phone in the
order on Monday.

UHMW is very tough, and very slippery. It is often used to make bearings,
slides, jigs, etc. I can't remember its melting point off the top of my
head, but it could be great to use to make extrusion heads.

UHMW is 3.75/lb. 5lb costs USD$18.75.

If you're running into financial issues, I'll loan you 5lb or so, if you like.
