Acetal Plastic Sheet

Acetal Plastic Sheet(polyoxymethylene or POM) is one of many plastics types available from Advanced Seals & Gaskets.

Acetal plastics are manufactured and supplied in sheets up to 1200 x 300mm in size and thicknesses between 0.8mm and 50mm, which can be cut down into smaller sheets and pads, or used to convert in a range of other products including washers, gaskets or strips.

Using one of our many on-site saws, presses or CNC machines, we are able to convert Acetal plastic into bespoke sized sheets or pads, all of which can be supplied with a choice of self adhesives or foils.

    What Are Acetal Plastic Sheets?

    Acetal plastic is a highly wear resistant, strong , low friction engineering thermoplastic recognised for its strong physical and processing properties - retaining its hardness and rigidity even when exposed to high and low temperatures and in both wet and dry environments. Being a thermoplastic polymer, not only can these sheets of material be cut or pressed into other products, it can also be vacuum formed - melted over and over again, where it is cooled down back to a solid state in it’s new shape or form.

    Why Use Acetal Plastic Sheets?

    Different types and grades of plastic sheet offer different properties designed to withstand different exposures from applications and environments.

    Manufacturers and engineers often choose to use Acetal plastic sheets to convert into other products as its easy to machine, resistant to some chemicals, solvents and hydrocarbons and offers excellent wear properties in wet or dry conditions.

    Acetal plastics sheets are available in two material options - Homopolymer and Copolymer, Homopolymer Acetal as strong and tough at room temperature, whereas Copolymer Acetal demonstrates excellent performance at high heat and within hot water environments as it’s less porous.

    Other Types of Plastic Available

    Advanced Seals & Gaskets work with a multitude of material manufacturers and suppliers, giving our customers more choice of plastic sheeting - our most popular materials being:

    • PTFE
    • Polycarbonate
    • Polypropylene
    • HIPS (High Impact Polystyrene)
    • PVC
    • Polyester
    • ABS
    • Acrylic
    • Nylatron

    Advantages Of Using Acetal Plastic Sheet

    Acetal plastic sheet offers users many advantages, it's easy to machine into intricate components and offers many desirable characteristics and properties including excellent creep resistance, dimensional stability, strength, low coefficient friction, low water absorption and good electrical properties.

    Combined with the excellent wear resistance and performance in cold or hot environments (including hot water), makes Acetal sheet perfect for converting into parts for use within pumps and valves, gears, electrical components, food production, medical devices and other fixtures.
