Acetal Sheets and Acetal Rods (aka POM) acetal copolymer provides high strength and stiffness coupled with enhanced dimensional stability and ease of machining. Acetal is a general purpose, semi-crystalline engineered thermoplastics. Acetal is commonly used for parts that need to be stiff, and have low surface tension and good dimensional stability.
Acetal is made in slightly different formulations variations sold under various trade names. Each Acetal manufactured use a range of recipes that are adjusted to improve specific properties. One of the most important differences between homopolymer acetal (POM-H) and copolymer acetal (POM-C) is porosity, porosity in plastics means it may contain small bubbles or voids. Copolymer acetals have little to no porosity at their centers. This makes them preferred acetal for food contact or medical applications.
Features of Acetal Sheets and Rods:
Low moisture absorption
