RS Pro Natural POM-C Acetal Solid Plastic Sheets

From RS Pro a range of high-quality Acetal solid plastic sheets natural in colour and available in a range of sizes and thicknesses.

What are Solid Plastic Sheets?

Solid plastic sheets are sheets of strong durable plastic or plastic like materials which are cut to size and sold in a wide range of sizes and thickness. These hard plastic sheets, once purchased, can then be cut or machined into components for the fabrication of products for use in a wide range of industries. Different plastics have different properties which lend them for use in specific applications

What is POM-C Acetal?

Acetal or polyacetal is a semi-crystalline thermoplastic and is a member of the family of plastics called polyoxymethylene (POM). This POM-C acetal is an unfilled POM copolymer which, due to its high crystallinity, is especially tough with good chemical resistance. This type of acetal also offers high mechanical strength and rigidity, excellent wear, low moisture absorption and excellent dimensional stability. Acetal also has good sliding properties, it is slippy, this means that components made from acetal slide very easily and don’t stick or lock up. This is an essential quality when this plastic is used in delicate or fine instruments where smooth operation is essential and in gears and bearings. Acetal solid plastic sheet is classified as an engineering plastic and, due to its unique properties, is ideal for use in a wide range of industries and is also one of the best engineering plastics for machining.

Features and Benefits

• Strong, tough and rigid
• Low moisture absorption, this reduces likelihood of distortion or expansion during machining
• Excellent dimensional stability. (This is the degree to which a material maintains its original dimensions when subjected to changes in temperature and humidity).
• Hot water resistant
• Good chemical resistance
• Resistant to dilute acids, cleaning agents and many solvents
• Good sliding properties
• Low friction with good wear resistance
• Difficult to bond
• Easily welded
• Good electrical insulation properties
• Easy to machine and polish
