Description

Acetal rod in a large range of thicknesses. Acetal rod is widely praised for its excellent machining ability and is often the first choice plastic to use with CNC machines.

Key Features:

  • Very low moisture absorption
  • Excellent dimensional stability
  • High quality surface finish
  • High chemical resistance
  • Exceptional for machining
  • Wide operating temperature range
  • High mechanical strength
  • Excellent sliding properties
  • Suitable for food environments

This is mainly due to the fact that acetal tends to chip rather than swarf when being machined – this removes or reduces the problem of CNC machines becoming entangled – reducing labour costs caused by supervision time and increasing the speed at which jobs can be completed.

Acetal rod has a wide operating temperature range of -50c to +100c and it maintains excellent impact strength even at low temperatures. It's low moisture absorption and high chemical resistance make it an ideal engineering plastic for a wide variety of applications and it's various properties combined give it excellent dimensional stability.

    Please Note: Available in 500mm & 1000mm lengths only.
