ACETAL ACETRON® GP

ACETRON® GP ACETAL Key Facts

Acetron® GP is a general purpose acetal and is the only porosity-free acetal product available today. Investments in process technology 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 quick check dye penetrant test.

Acetron® GP provides a high modulus of elasticity coupled with great strength, stiffness and toughness. It is also characterized by a low coefficient of friction and good bearing characteristics.

Because acetal absorbs only minimal amounts of moisture, its physical properties remain constant in a variety of environments. In high moisture situations, including sub­ merged applications, Acetron® GP bearings outperform nylon 4 to 1.

Acetron® GP is ideally suited for mechanical parts and electrical insulators which require exceptional strength at above-normal temperature or moisture levels. Low moisture absorption gives excellent dimensional stability to close-tolerance fabricated parts. Most acetal formulations are FDA and USDA com­ pliant for applications involving contact with food.
