Designed to replace metal, the semi-crystalline polymer, Acetal, combines stiffness and strength with durability and lubricity without the need for glass reinforcement. Boasting excellent product fusion and a wide range of temperature performance levels, Acetal offers a thinner, lighter, and more flexible design than leading market products. Acetal is easily manufactured for a variety of industrial and consumer applications including automotive parts and innovative medical devices.
Due to its low moisture absorption rate, Acetal’s physical properties remain constant in every environment, resulting in an ideally suited and stable product for close tolerance mechanical parts and electrical insulators. Acetal is designed to resist damage from most chemicals and solvents. In high moisture or submerged applications, Acetal bearings outperform nylon 4-to-1.
Acetal is a highly customizable product created to meet consumer’s specific needs. The product is manufactured in both rods and plates with standard and custom dimensions. Available to match any application’s coloring, Acetal is stocked in natural colors with the option of customization.
