Acetal Plastic

The benefits of an acetal plastic sheet include a low coefficient of friction, high strength, low moisture absorption, and easy machinability. It is excellent for applications with close-tolerance mechanical parts, as electrical insulators, or in FDA compliance applications such as food service. Acetal sheets retain their toughness through a broad temperature range and are a good choice in wet environments. In abrasive wear applications, nylon may be a better choice than an Acetal plastic sheet. Midland Plastics stocks acetal plastic sheets, rods, and tubular bars for a variety of different applications. Contact Midland Plastics to be your go-to acetal plastic supplier.
