Acetal

Newloc Acetal Plastic FittingAcetal's initial development dates to the 1920's, but it was introduced as a commercial product in the 1950's. Acetal copolymer is a thermoplastic material with a desirable balance of performance properties. It is known for its ease of processing and offers benefits over metal and certain other thermoplastics such as:

  • Excellent chemical and abrasion resistance
  • Low coefficient of friction
  • High strength and stiffness
  • Good impact resistance
  • Excellent shape retention, even at elevated temperatures
  • Good dielectric strength
  • Accepts colorants well
  • Resists hot air, hot water, and the effects of weather

In addition to its use as a material for fittings and tubing, Acetal's applications include a variety of industrial uses (gears, bearings and bushings, valve parts), appliance components (blades, housings, faucet elements), plumbing parts, automotive components, and other consumer-oriented items.
