There are four material grade options available for the make of your stencils. For heavy-duty and long term use, the .080 ALU is the most durable option. This rigid 5052 aluminum will last forever and can endure any type of job. It is also good for thermoplastic extruding. The ?" PRO-Grade LDPE is the most commonly used material for this type of stencil, and is an industry standard. It can withstand thousands of reuses over several years before ever showing signs of wear or tear. The 1/16" LDPE is the counterpart to the PRO-Grade, but with half the thickness for added flexibility. This material grade is good for infrequent uses. The .030" HIPS is the thinnest option available, offering an ultra-flexible fit for a custom or one-time job.
