One everyday application that uses performance industrial plastic is guitar picks. The rigors of many thousands of abrasive strokes against guitar strings means quality plastic is ideally suited to this application. ULTEM (semi-transparent amber or black color) is sometimes used but acetal (opaque white or black) is more common. Black nylon is also a good plastic for this application but is less well known. We recently found a website all about a do-it-yourself product called the “Pick Punch” this lets you take acetal and punch your own picks at home – you might never run out again! This is much more economical (and fun) than simply buying picks, wouldn’t you say?

The website gives lots of tips on how to finish your picks as well as which types of plastic or items to NOT punch with the machine. You can check it out here: http://www.pickpunch.com
