Usage Guidelines All Questions

Pre-bent plastic


<R9>When using plastic from last years field components, we ran into issues when we used the side of the balance platform. It is already bent at a 90 degree angle, so we did not bend it. Is this allowed?

Answered by committee

Clause C of rule <R9> permits bending of non-shattering plastic up to 0.070" thick. Using pre-bent pieces of non-shattering plastic from previous field sets is allowed, provided the plastic meets all requirements of rule <R9>.
