At HP Manufacturing, we are proud to offer a wide range of Acetal plastics specifically engineered to meet the demands of high-performance manufacturing. Acetal plastics exhibit exceptional strength, stiffness, and dimensional stability, making them the ideal choice for applications requiring utmost precision and reliability.
Acetel’s exceptional wear properties make it a preferred option for applications subjected to constant friction and demanding conditions. As a semi-crystalline material, it boasts a remarkably low coefficient of friction, enabling smooth and efficient operation even in wet environments.
Within the Acetal family, we provide an extensive selection of both homopolymer and copolymer grades, including enhanced bearing grade materials. Acetal Copolymer, renowned for its porosity-free composition, serves as a standard general-purpose grade, offering outstanding performance and machinability. This material is particularly suitable for applications in the food contact and medical sectors, where porosity-free materials are crucial.
Acetron® GP is a porosity-free general purpose acetal, providing the benefits of acetal without the porosity found in other versions of the product. As a result, Acetron GP is FDA, USDA, NSF, Canada AG and 3A-Dairy compliant. Acetron GP also offers better chemical resistance than homopolymer acetal variants.
For those seeking elevated mechanical properties, we offer an array of homopolymer Acetal products, such as Delrin®, available in various sizes and forms. Delrin® surpasses the mechanical properties of Acetal Copolymer, delivering enhanced performance for a wide range of applications. It’s worth noting that larger cross-sections of Delrin® may contain a low-density center, but this does not compromise its overall quality.
For applications where reduced friction and prolonged wear life are of utmost importance, we proudly present Delrin® AF Blend. This unique thermoplastic material combines the benefits of PTFE fibers uniformly dispersed in Delrin acetal resin, resulting in exceptional low-friction properties. Moving parts in need of smooth operation and extended durability will benefit greatly from the outstanding characteristics of Delrin® AF Blend.
