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.
