New England Hardboard's plastic bats are designed by studio potters and made from a high quality strong plastic. They are cut from a high-quality marine grade High Density Polyethylene (HDPE), which is produced using a patented extrusion process. The plastic bats are CNC cut for accurate measurements and great pin fit. Rounded edges provide smoothness, durability, and easy removal. This ensures perfect flatness of every sheet and every bat! These bats are textured on both sides and always flat! Available in a 12" diameter, they will fit any standard wheel head. They are textured on both sides so clay adheres equally well on either surface: a true "two-sided" bat.
We recommend storing New England Hardboard plastic bats in a slotted rack or stacked on a flat surface to prevent warping. When stacking bats, be sure they are clean prior to stacking. Even the slightest obstruction can cause the bats to warp.
They’re easy to care for, extremely versatile, and a great choice for schools and art centers where pots are often left on bats for long periods of time. They are easy to clean, and impervious to water and most chemicals.
