Acetal


Acetal offers an ideal combination of strength, toughness and hardness with excellent slide especially suited for chemical applications.

Our Acetal extruded co-polymer sheets are semi crystalline thermoplastic and characterised by a low coefficient of friction, good wear properties and offer resistance to a wide range of chemicals, including many solvents. They also provide high mechanical strength, stiffness and heat resistance. As water absorption is very low, dimensional accuracy and stability is improved over nylons.
 

Typical Uses

  • High mechanical strength, stiffness and hardness
  • Excellent resilience
  • Good creep resistance
  • High impact strength, even at low temperatures
  • Very good dimensional stability (low water absorption)
  • Good sliding properties and wear resistance
  • Excellent machinability
  • Good electrical insulating and dielectric properties
  • Physiologically inert (most grades are suitable for food contact)


Example Applications

Gear wheels with small modulus, cams, heavily loaded bearings and rollers, bearings and gears with small clearances, valve seats, snap-fit assemblies, dimensionally stable precision parts, electrically insulating components.
