Amari Plastics | Acetal


Acetal is a high strength, low friction engineering plastic ideal for machining and its excellent wear properties.

Acetal is available in a variety of grades, including:

  • Acetal H (Delrin). A homopolymer acetal that is high in mechanical strength, stiffness and toughness.
  • Acetal C. A general-purpose copolymer acetal with low creep tendency, low moisture absorption and good machinability.
  • Acetal ESD60 Conductive. An electrically conductive acetal that combines very high stiffness and high dimensional stability, whilst also able to withstand high mechanical loads.
  • Acetal ESD90 Antistatic. An antistatic grade of acetal with less fluctuations in the electrical resistance, good dimensional stability and low moisture absorption.
  • Acetal FG (Food Grade). As a food grade product, Acetal FG is most suitable for contact with foodstuffs according to (EC) No. 1935/2004. Its low moisture absorption combined with good chemical resistance also makes the material most ideal for the food processing industry.
  • Acetal GF25 (Glass Filled). With this glass filled grade of acetal, there is emphasis placed on the high dimensional stability and high rigidity qualities – making this material the ideal combination of tensile strength, stiffness and impact strength.
  • Acetal GLD160. This acetal engineering plastic offers extremely low wear and very good sliding properties -ensuring that there’s no ‘stick-slip’ effect.
  • Acetal GLD350. High in abrasion resistance and with low moisture absorption, Acetal GLD350 is a product ideal for engineering purposes.
  • Acetal MDT. Acetal MDT is a metal detectable, low moisture absorbable acetal that is applicable to the food processing industry.
