ACETAL COPOLYMER IN FOUR FOOT SHEETS
ACETECH XLS™ from A.L. Hyde, an easy
to machine, extremely low stress acetal copolymer that improves part yield and
allows tighter tolerances, is now available in 4' sheets. Representative of the
latest in plastics technology, ACETECH XLS consistently measures lower in stress
than materials currently on the market. It exceeds requirements for physical
properties, stress, and centerline porosity per ASTM D 6100 S-POM0211, LP.
The materials features include no
centerline porosity, excellent dimensional stability, outstanding wear
properties and good chemical resistance. These characteristics assure
outstanding appearance, mechanical integrity, and proven consistent performance.
Suitable for use in food processing applications, ACETECH XLS complies with FDA
requirements for direct food contact. Slab is available in thicknesses ranging
from 3/8" to 2".
The acetal copolymer is ideal for machining
a wide variety of parts. For very intricate parts, lower stress and better
dimension stability means less warping. It is also an excellent choice to
replace materials such as steel, brass, bronze, and aluminum to help reduce part
weight, improve wear or chemical resistance, and reduce factory noise, or the
need for lubricants. Less warping, combined with no centerline porosity, will
result in parts with outstanding appearance and mechanical integrity.
A product data sheet containing testing
information and physical property performance is available.
