Description

Ertacetal® / Acetron® is family of acetals with greater dimensional stability than polyamides despite having a lower wear resistance. Mitsubishi Chemical Group offers both homopolymer and copolymer grades of POM. Special formulations include an enhanced bearing grade material, a metal- and x-ray-detectable acetal, food-contact compliant acetals, and a range of colors. In general, acetals do not perform as well in abrasive wear applications as nylons. However, Ertacetal® / Acetron® offers a range of excellent performance attributes including high mechanical strength, stiffness, and hardness, great resilience and resistance to creep, high impact strength at low temperatures, low water absorption for great dimensional stability, and food-contact compatibility. Acetron® GP Polyoxymethylene POM-C FG (Food Grade) / Ertacetal® C Polyoxymethylene POM-C FG (Food Grade) is a general purpose, copolymer acetal grade that is favored for its porosity free nature, as well as its higher resistance to hydrolysis, strong alkalis, and thermal oxidative degradation than homopolymer acetal grades. These food grade, POM-C shapes also offer low moisture absorption and excellent machinability capabilities, making it a very versatile material that can excel in a multitude of environments. Due to these characteristics and their compliance with compositional FDA 21 CFR § 177.2470 and EU 10/2011 requirements, components made from this material are used frequently for food contact applications.
