Small Quantities of Materials

Small Quantities of Materials

Looking for a good place to order from for small quantities of materials - mostly plastics and rubber. I'm helping a fella in my warehouse with this prototype and we don't want to commit to a material until we've tested out a few options. It's for an item that's quite small (imagine 1" x 1" x 1").

RE: Small Quantities of Materials

Not sure where you are, but we use Discover Plastics in Minneapolis for small quantities. They have countless materials in stock at any given time.

It is better to have enough ideas for some of them to be wrong, than to be always right by having no ideas at all.

RE: Small Quantities of Materials

Thank you kindly for the push in the right direction. I'm working out of City of Commerce in California but I'll reach out to Discover Plastics and see my options.
