Acetal is a high-quality engineering grade of plastic, lending itself to a whole host of applications, across a broad spectrum of industrial sectors. Our in-house cutting facilities enable us to manufacture acetal or Delrin® parts in any shape from simple round or square designs, to more bespoke configurations with holes or slots incorporated.
What are the advantages of using acetal washers?
Acetal washers are widely found in both the electronics and automotive trades. Acetal has key attributes within its structure that make it a perfect choice of material for applications where a lightweight and durable, yet cost-effective solution is required. Acetal can be easily die cut to most shapes and is often found within gear and locking systems, wheels, rollers, and cogs. In addition, acetal has a low coefficient of friction making it the perfect robust and hard-wearing solution for applications where moving parts meet, such as wear plates and liners. Having a good impact strength coupled with a high stiffness, acetal is often used as a replacement for metal parts, thus reducing the overall cost within a build.
