Acetal provides 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 acetal absorbs minimal amounts of moisture, its physical properties remain constant in a variety of environments. Low moisture absorption results in excellent dimensional stability for close–tolerance machined parts. In high mositure or submerged applications, acetal bearings outperform nylon 4 to 1. Acetal is ideally suited for close tolerance mechanical parts and electrical insulators which require strength and stiffness. It also offers resistance to a wide range of chemicals including many solvents. Teflon
