Acetal

Acetal II Empire Plastics Sioux Falls SD

Acetal is a general purpose copolymer that is porosity free.  This material is easily machined with excellent dimensional stability for close tolerance parts.  A low coefficient of friction and excellent wear properties, especially in wet or moist environments, make it easy to see why acetal is one of the most widely used engineering thermoplastics available today.  Empire Plastics stocks acetal in both sheet and rod form.
