ACETRON® NS ACETAL Key Facts
Acetron is a new, patented, acetal-based compound containing special solid lubricants which provide superior performance in bearing and wear applications. These special lubricants are uniformly dispersed in the base acetal, providing a premium, internally-lubricated compound with high PV capabilities, low coefficient of friction, and an extremely good “k” factor. The solid lubricants, firmly locked in the acetal matrix, are always exposed to the bearing surface. This constant source of lubrication results in Acetron acetal’s outstanding bearing performance compared to other bearing materials. The additives system which provides the lubrication is a patented composite. The system provides for lubrication aid during break-in of a bearing material and long-term lubrication for wear resistance.
The acetal and solid lubricants do not absorb significant quantities of moisture making acetron acetal very stable in both wet and dry environments. It is recommended for precision, close tolerance parts.
Acetron acetal should be considered for applications now serviced by other, more expensive, premium-priced, internally lubricated acetal compositions.
This very competitively-priced product will out-perform other filled acetals in most bearing and wear applications.
