Acetal Tubes - Acetal Copolymer Tubes provide high strength and stiffness coupled with enhanced dimensional stability and ease of machining. As a semi-crystalline material, acetal is also characterized by a low coefficient of friction and good wear properties especially in wet environments. Because of its high strength, modulus, and resistance to impact and fatigue, Acetal copolymer tubes are used as a weight-saving metal replacement. Acetal copolymer overcomes the common problem of centerline porosity in large shapes of Acetal Homopolymer (aka Delrin)
Acetal Copolymer is preferred to Delrin (DuPont brand Acetal Homopolymer) where centerline porosity is a concern.
Acetal copolymer is produced under several brand names including Celcon, Ultraform & Acetron.
