Acetal Machining

Acetal is a low friction polymer that is quite strong and stiff.  As a result of these properties it has the benefit of being dimensionally stable. Acetal is naturally white in color but it is available in different pigmented colors.

Some of the reasons for choosing Acetal include:

  • Relatively low cost
  • Wide temperature range
  • High mechanical strength and rigidity
  • Good insulator for electrical applications
  • Excellent fatigue endurance
  • Resists moisture, solvents, gas, and numerous neutral chemicals
  • Resilience and resistance to creep
  • Can resist multiple impacts
  • Lubricity

It’s pretty easy to machine Acetal because while it retains its stiffness, it’s soft enough for tools to breeze through it.  Finished parts retain their dimensions because of its high stability across a large temperature range.
