Acetal

Armstrong Energy stocks the standard grade of Acetal:

  • Ertacetal® C - natural and black

The acetal copolymer (POM-C) is more resistant against hydrolysis, strong alkalis and thermal-oxidative degradation than the acteal homopolymer (POM-H). The latter however has a higher mechanical strength, stiffness, hardness and resistence to creep, as well as a lower thermal expansion rate and often presents better wear resistance. Ertacetal® is very well suited for machining on automatic lathes and is recommended for mechanical precision parts.

Available in rod, tube and sheet, cut to size or machined to customer requirements.
