Acetal Sheet, Rod and Strip
Acetal is a highly crystalline form of polymerred formaldehyde. Acetal sheet, rod and strip like standard shapes are produced from copolymer (Celcon) or homopolymer (Delrin) resins. Acetal has strength, stiffness and toughness, which gives Acetal sheet and Acetal rod the desired capability. It is characterized by a low co-efficient of friction and good bearing characteristics. We distribute high quality Acetal sheets, Acetal rods and Acetal strips throughout Ontario, Winnipeg, Quebec, Manitoba and Alberta in Canada.
Physical properties remain constant in a variety of environments since it absorbs only minimum amounts of moisture. Under conditions of high moisture, acetal bearings can out perform nylon by 4 to 1. However, under conditions of average humidity, nylons are superior to acetals in impact strength and abrasion resistance. Dimensional stability of acetal sheet and acetal rod allows for the machining of close tolerance parts.
