For best results, it is important that UHMW sheet, Chanex, or wearstrips be securely fastened to the substrate. Thermal expansion and contraction of the material will create significant force that tries to move the material.
Proper selection and spacing of fasteners according to the material thickness will overcome this force and hold the sheet flat against the substrate. Detailed information is available in our Technical Information Section.
Northern Plastics offers 2 sizes of weld washers and spade bits for this purpose. Many products can be ordered pre-drilled, or drilled and complete with washers.
