Acetal and Delrin (POM-C/POM-H)
Acetal provides high strength and stiffness coupled with enhanced dimensional stability and ease of machining. As a semi-crystalline material, acetal is also characterized by a low coefficient of friction and good wear properties -- especially in wet environments.
- Acetron GP (Acetal)
Acetal Copolymer (POM-C) • Extruded Grade •Natural Color
Acetron GP is Quadrant's general purpose copolymer acetal and is the only porosity-free acetal product available today. Investments in process technology by Quadrant now provide the performance and machinability of acetal without center core porosity. Our in-line photometric quality procedure assures every plate and rod is porosity-free as measured by Quadrant's dye penetrant test making it the preferred acetal for food contact and medical applications. Acetron GP natural is FDA, USDA, NSF, Canada AG and 3A-Dairy compliant. See also Acetron GP Black (Acetal).
Acetal Homopolymer (POM-H) • Extruded Grade •Natural Color
Acetron Delrin, a homopolymer acetal, is also manufactured and stocked in rod and plate. It offers slightly higher mechanical properties than Acetron GP Acetal, but may contain a low-density center, especially in larger cross-sections. Copolymer acetal also offers better chemical resistance than homopolymer acetal. Delrin is ideal for small diameter, thin-walled bushings that benefit from the additional strength and rigidity of homopolymer acetal. See also Delrin Black.
- Delrin AF Blend
Acetal Homopolymer (POM-H) • Extruded Grade •Brown Color
Acetron Delrin AF Blend is a unique thermoplastic material for use in moving parts in which low friction and long wear life are important. It is a combination of PTFE fibers uniformly dispersed in Delrin acetal resin. This combination offers better wear characteristics than unfilled Delrin. The natural color of Delrin AF Blend is dark brown.
