Acetal Copolymer Ultra Detectable

Overview

What is the Material: Acetal Copolymer Ultra Detectable is a semi-crystalline material and it is a modified acetal copolymer filled with a multi-detectable filler.

Key Material Features: This material is beneficial in applications requiring increased food safety, while maintaining many benefits of other acetal copolymer materials including high mechanical strength, rigidity, excellent wear, low moisture absorption, and dimensional stability.

Other Considerations: The detectable filler makes the material detectable using x-ray imaging, metal detection, and by optical scanners due to the addition on the blue pigment. Nylon materials typically perform better than acetal materials in abrasive wear applications.
