  • Acetal

    Acetal Rod

    (30)

    Acetal is a general-purpose copolymer (also available as a homopolymer – Delrin) acetal that is porosity free. The technology used in our manufacturing process ensures that every sheet and rod is free of centerline or core porosity. Acetal is easily machined with excellent dimensional stability for close tolerance parts. A low coefficient of friction and excellent wear properties, especially in wet or moist environments, make it easy to see why Acetal is one of the most widely used engineering thermoplastics available today.

    Product Features:

    • Excellent dimensional stability
    • Continuous use temperature of 180°F
    • Porosity free
    • Consistent properties in wet or moist environments
    • Very low moisture absorption
    • Excellent electrical properties
    • Easy to machine to close tolerances
    • Natural and Black are FDA & USDA compliant

    Brands include: Quadrant (Delrin), Rochling (Sustarin), Plastifab, ZL Plastic, Nytef

  • Acetal-AF

    Acetal AF Blend AF Blend) is a special formulation of acetal blended with 13% to 20% Teflon fibers added for enhanced wear characteristics and a lower coefficient of friction. Acetal AF Blend retains approximately 90% of the strength and rigidity of acetal but with improved bearing and sliding properties. Acetal AF is fully tested and certified to meet U.S. Navy specifications for use in seals, gaskets and valve seats.

    Product Features:

    • Continuous use temperature of 185° F
    • Natural color is dark brown
    • Low coefficient of friction
    • Excellent sliding properties
    • Improved wear properties versus Delrin
    • Excellent insulator
    • Excellent strength and toughness
    • Very easy to machine
    Brands include: Quadrant (Delrin AF), Rochling (Sustarin H AF), Plastifab and ZL Plastic
