WE BRING VALUE!

If you are trying to start a new business, we can offer suggestions on new product introduction. We can even talk to you about business in general. Desert Plastics was started from the ground floor.

If you only need your idea committed to professional drawings, adjusting for the idiosyncrasies of the molding process, we are there. We can counsel on the issues of kiss-offs, under-cuts, tapered walls, reinforcements, and parting line / venting placements.

We have serviced many special customers since 1999. This background gives us a special view into how others have solved design issues and altered projects to provide lower costs.

We bring to the table an unusual view of things. We ask a lot of questions if you will permit it. We challenge conventional thinking. We offer alternate opinions and suggestions. We certainly mean no irritation, but using us as “another set of eyes” sometimes brings issues out that were not considered.

OTHER IMPORTANT CONSIDERATIONS:

COLORS

In custom molding, we currently stock (32) solid and speckled colors but we can customize to any color. Within the sheet plastic arena, many colors are available.

MATERIALS

The most common fabrication materials are Polyethylene, Acrylic, and Polycarbonate. Other materials we have used in fabrication are Polypropylene, PETG, PVDF (Kynar), ABS, and PVC. There are many other plastic types available to us. Please inquire.

MOLDED-IN METAL INSERTS

In custom molding, molded-in Inserts will dramatically reduce the assembly time of most projects. The most common materials are Aluminum, Brass, and Stainless Steel. While most are threaded, there is quite a variety available including custom configurations. Let us know what you need.

WELDED FITTINGS

In plastic molding, there are many styles of fittings that can be welded into place almost wherever you want. Plastic welding produces strong, leak-free, and very cost effective options.

LASER CUTTING & LASER ETCHING

The fine cutting and etching of a commercial laser is far better in detail than can be accomplished on even the best CNC Router. We’ve got one.

SOME OF THE MANY AREAS WE HAVE DONE FABRICATION WORK:
  • Museum Displays
  • Artwork Protection
  • Displays
  • Artist Supplies
  • Project Protection
  • Windows
  • Display Guards
  • Museum Cases

TOLERANCES

In custom fabrication, all sheet material is cut on our 3-axis CNC MultiCam Router. The maximum table size is 84” x 122” and is very accurate.

MOLD-IN PLASTIC GRAPHICS

On molded Polyethylene items, we can install any graphic, in any color combination, and in any size.
