Yellow ABS 3/16″ is a great impact-resistant material with a safety yellow color. This material is also an FDA food grade approved material. Also available in a 1/8″ lightweight plastic. The lightweight material is intended for less abusive environments.
Clear PETG 3/16″ boasts great impact strength and chemical resistance.

Metal detectable blue ABS plastic is an option for the lightweight 2-Bolt, 3-Bolt, 4-Bolt and Round Bearing Cover families. This new material is an excellent alternative in the food and pharmaceutical industries where traditionally, an all metal guard would be required.
