The opaque off-white acetal copolymer round rod has a standard tolerance and meets American Society for Testing and Materials ASTM D6778 specifications. Acetal copolymer is a strong, rigid plastic that offers excellent dimensional stability, enhanced by the material's moisture and creep resistance, and maintains its properties better than acetal homopolymer when exposed to hot water, hot air, and humid environments. The material has a low-friction surface and excellent abrasion resistance.
Plastic refers to a group of synthetic or semi-synthetic materials that have been engineered to achieve specific properties. The most notable characteristics of plastics are its low weight, machinability, corrosion resistance, and typically good thermal and electrical insulating properties. Certain plastic grades also offer optical transparency similar to glass, low-friction or self-lubricating surfaces, and exceptional impact resistance. Depending on their properties, certain plastic grades can be used as alternatives to metal, glass, and ceramic. Unlike metal, plastic may experience creep, which is deformation caused by longtime exposure to a constant load.
Tensile strength, used to indicate the material’s overall strength, is the peak stress it can withstand before it breaks. Corrosion resistance describes the material's ability to prevent deterioration caused by atmosphere, moisture, or other medium. Wear resistance indicates the ability to prevent surface damage caused by contact with other surfaces. Toughness describes the material's ability to absorb energy before breaking, while hardness (commonly measured as indentation hardness) describes its resistance to permanent surface deformation. Impact resistance is the measure of a material’s ability to absorb a shock of energy before breaking.

I received this and a 1" x 12" piece of this product for use making jig bearings and slides for my woodworking project. Each piece was found to be of uniform thickness as expected and perfect for use in my shop.

This stuff works pretty great for pipe stem tennons. Drill it out and glue it in. You have to score it first or it will slip out as the Acetal is pretty slick.Published on April 24, 2013 by Alan Pritchard
