Acetal & Delrin Material | Magnacetal
Acetal or Magnacetal is a hard engineering plastic with high tensile strength and rigidity and is an excellent all round, all purpose plastic material. Acetal is an excellent material for cnc machining and is commonly used for acetal bushings, rollers, gears, automotive applications, conveyor equipment and many more due to the materials high tensile strength, stiffness and excellent sliding properties.
Acetal material is recommended for components if being used underwater due to the materials low moisture absorption and is FDA approved material.
Advantages To Using Acetal
Acetal has many advantages when it comes to extruded round rod and custom cnc machined components. Lets take a look at how acetal can benefit your plastic component moving forward.
- Excellent corrosion resistance.
- Excellent creep and wear resistance.
