Acetal is a highly crystalline thermoplastic engineering resin that offers high mechanical properties and resists many chemicals. In particular, acetal is known for its high strength, creep resistance, resilience, surface hardness and lubricity, toughness, and excellent solvent and gasoline resistance. Additionally, it absorbs little water. There are two basic types of acetal resins: homopolymer and copolymer.
Application: Acetals can be injection molded, blow molded, and extruded as sheet and profiles. Regrind can be used, but is not recommended if optimum properties are needed. Acetals are used for molded and machined rollers, bearings, gears, conveyor chains, and housings. Furthermore, acetals are widely used in plumbing and irrigation because they resist scale buildup and have excellent thread strength. Automotive applications include, door handles, ventilation and cooling system parts, fuel system components, etc.
