Description

MSDS for Ertacetal CMSDS for Ertacetal C

Ertacetal® C (Acetron® GP) is the trade name for general purpose, porosity-free, copolymer acetal manufactured by Quadrant EPP. Quadrant has invested in advanced process technology that provides the performance and machinability of acetal without centre core porosity. In-line photometric quality procedures assures dye penetrant QC testing to ensure all stock shapes are manufactured porosity-free, making it the preferred acetal for food contact and medical applications. Ertacetal® C natural is FDA, USDA, NSF, Canada AG and 3A Dairy compliant.

Ertacetal® C (acetal rod, acetal sheet and acetal tube) is a semi-crystalline material with high strength, a low coefficient of friction and good wear properties especially in wet environments (resistance to hydrolysis).

Benefits of Ertacetal Rods, Sheets:

  • High mechanical strength
  • Dimensional stability
  • Excellent machinability
  • Good creep resistance
  • Very low stick-slip
  • Physiologically inert
  • Low moisture absorption
  • Continuous use at temperature 115 C
  • High hardness and stiffness
  • Very high mechanical properties
  • Excellent creep resistance and dimensional stability
  • Excellent dielectrical properties
  • Low co-efficient of friction

Ertacetal Plastics Applications:

  • Precision gears
  • Bearings with close tolerance
  • Electrical engineering insulations
  • Snapfit assemblies
  • Parts which operate in water up to 90 C
  • Physiologically inert
  • Low moisture absorption
  • Continuous use at temperature 115 C
