Acetal Machined Parts
One benefit of Acetal machined parts is its high level of stiffness and easy machinability. In essence, Acetal is dimensionally stabile. Another benefit to working with Acetal is that this material is thermoplastic. It can withstand a wide range of high/low temperatures and humidity levels while maintaining the original dimensions when used in extreme environments.
When To Use Acetal Machined Parts
Acetal machined parts are ideal for use in a variety of applications. The first being mechanical. For example, this material has been used to make gears, bushings, and guides - all widely used within the automotive industry. In addition, readily machined, Acetal is a semi-crystalline copolymer similar to its homopolymer cousin, Delrin®. This material offers a low coefficient of friction, and therefore, performs well in corrosive environments such as in automotive function. Acetal is one of the most versatile plastics used in precise plastic machining parts available which makes it perfect for electrical applications as well. These precise plastic parts have the ability to withstand tight tolerances, great wear properties in various environments, and insulation capabilities.
