CELCON® ACETAL COPOLYMER Key Facts
Celcon® acetal copolymer is an engineering thermoplastic which has a unique combination of properties. It offers a balance of high tensile strength, shear strength, stiffness and toughness, and retains these properties over long periods of time in a wide variety of environments. These properties, coupled with excellent fatigue endurance, resilience, abrasion resistance and vibration resistance, light weight and a low coefficient of friction, make Celcon® an ideal material for many gear applications.
Like metals, Celcon® is justifiably classed among the engineering materials, since its performance characteristics are of a high order, well-defined and predictable. In fact, Celcon® is being used to replace metals not only because of cost, but also because of performance. Key functional parts made from Celcon® (such as bearings, gears, cams, etc.) are currently ensuring the performance of products in all areas of the marketplace.
