Stiff and Durable under load
Available in Sheet, Rod, or Block form. Acetal offers high strength and stiffness in a durable material that will resist bending under load and also has the ability to withstand cyclic stressing.
Characteristics of Acetal
Due to it's dimensional stability, Acetal is commonly used for high-tolerance machined parts. It is very stiff, has a low surface friction. On top of its strength, some of Acetal's other desired characteristics are its 0% water absorption and corrosion resistance which makes it a great choice for a diverse range of food and beverage handling applications.
Food & Beverage
The dimensional stability of Acetal is also what allows it to be easily machined. You can have confidence that your plastic components will do the job and in some cases outlast their metal counter parts.
