Acetal PE Blend (POM-C + 10PE) Polyacetal

Acetal PE Blend (POM-C + 10PE)

Acetal PE Blend is an Acetal POM-C material modified with the addition of a solid lubricant being 10% polyethylene (PE). This alters the properties of the base Acetal POM-C which improves sliding and frictional properties, in-turn allowing for enhanced wear characteristics. The solid lubricant can slightly reduce strength and hardness of the base Acetal POM-C material, making application selection important.

  • Improved friction & abrasion resistant properties
  • High strength, rigidity and toughness
  • Solid lubricant for sliding properties

Features

Tribological Advantages

Does your application require the amazing technical properties of Acetal POM-C but needs a lower coefficient of friction? Are your current Acetal parts wearing out quicker than expected due to increased sliding requirements? Then our Acetal Polyethylene Blend is the material that will allow your components to glide with its exceptional sliding properties.

Food Contact Approved

Just like our Acetal range, our selection of Acetal Polyethylene Blend materials are FDA approved for applications that require approval for direct food contact. Also being blue in colour assists with optical detection of contaminants in food processing lines.

Applications

Components requiring high strength and stiffness with dimensional stability and above all - reduced friction. Examples such as sliding bearings or plates, components that require food contact approved materials such as wear strips, gears or rollers. Widely used where mating with stainless steel but require reduced friction.
