Modern Plastics offers Acetron® GP, a general purpose acetal; the only porosity-free acetal product available today. Investments in process technology by Quadrant EPP now provide the performance and machinability of acetal without center core porosity.
An in-line photometric quality procedure assures every plate and rod is porosity-free as measured by Quadrant EPP’s quick check dye penetrant test. Acetron® GP natural is FDA, USDA, NSF, Canada AG and 3A-Dairy compliant.
Acetal provides high strength and stiffness coupled with enhanced dimensional stability and ease of machining. As a semi-crystalline material, acetal is also characterized by a low coefficient of friction and good wear properties –– especially in wet environments.
Because acetal absorbs minimal amounts of moisture, its physical properties remain constant in a variety of environments. Low moisture absorption results in excellent dimensional stability for close-tolerance machined parts. In high moisture or submerged applications, acetal bearings outperform nylon 4 to 1.
Acetal is ideally suited for close tolerance mechanical parts and electrical insulators which require strength
and stiffness. It also offers resistance to a wide range of chemicals including many solvents.
