Acetal Sheets is a custom-made, industrial-strength thermoplastic material that was created to replace metal in many applications. Unlike other plastics, it is a superior, custom-made thermoplastic material. Acetal is a special plastic that was created to replace metal in a variety of applications. Copolymer and homopolymer resins are utilised to create acetal forms, which provide high levels of flexibility in addition to outstanding strength, stiffness, and durability. These thermoplastics are recyclable since they can be melted, cooled, and solidified once again. They have low friction and excellent bearing characteristics. Acetal is a commonly used plastic in the industrial industry. Engineering components that demand great performance, such as those used in the electronics and automotive industries, are among its uses. Gear wheels, bolts, lock systems, and other items fall into this category.
Acetal Copolymer is preferred to Delrin® in high-pressure applications where centerline porosity is a concern
