Foods & Culinary Polyethylene gives superior qualities in a cutting stick and is one of the most flexible and least expensive plastics when compared with other thermo-forming plastic materials. Premium Polypropylene These cutting sticks are created out of hardwearing Polypropylene (this plastic type is for applications requiring high impact resistance, strength and durability) and are perfect for high volume cutting environments. Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) are among the most in demand cutting sticks today. PVC is actually the most commonly used material for manufacturing plastic products, and you should look for PVC cutting sticks that are very rigid and strong. Nylon These hard-wearing, cast nylon cutting sticks are extremely dense and are specifically compatible with high-volume pounding and cutting. Search for a dealer that gives you cutting sticks with superior tensile and compressive strength. Superior quality cutting sticks’ natural smoothness and self-mending qualities can extend their longevity. This toughness of high-standard sticks makes it unnecessary for you to rotate them as frequently as you would other. Lastly, to make sure you get all the benefits of top quality cutting sticks, take note of the following: > Superior quality cutting sticks for your paper cutters are created to protect your cutting blades, as well as to give you a clean, sharp edge with each cut. > Sticks usually have 8 various positions. You will be able to rotate the stick four, turn it end to end, and rotate it again four times. > A worn out cutting stick can compromise your bottom sheet’s cut quality.
