  • No center line porosity in Acetal CoPolymer

Engineering specifications for Acetal CoPolymer Rod are:

  • Tensile Strength – 9,500 psi
  • Compressive Strength – 15,000 psi
  • Water Absorption (saturation) – 0.9%
  • Continuous Service Temperature – 180° deg. F
  • Resistant to Hydrocarbons, Ketones, Ethers, Chlorinated solvents (limited service) & Alcohols
  • Flammability rating UL94:HB

Engineering Notes:

In general, acetals do not perform as well in abrasive wear applications as nylons. Compensation for moisture related growth generally allows Nylatron® nylons to be used for wet, abrasive applications. If your application requires dimensional consistency in an abrasive, high humidity or submerged environment, Ertalyte® PET-P will often offer improved performance.
