WEARGEHR Acetal FG is a wear resistant grade of GEHR Acetal copolymer. WEARGEHR Acetal FG contains a solid filler for enhanced impact, friction and wear properties. WEARGEHR Acetal FG (Food Grade) is also FDA compliant and does not contain any PTFE in it. This material is an alternative to the well know Delrin AF material, with additional FDA compliance.

As a semi-crystalline material, Acetal is characterized by a low coefficient of friction and good wear properties-especially in wet environments. Because acetal absorbs minimal amounts of moisture, its physical properties remain constant in a variety of environments. Low moisture absorption gives excellent dimensional stability for close-tolerance machined parts. In high moisture or submerged applications, Acetal bearings outperform nylon 4 to 1. Acetal is ideally suited for close tolerance mechanical parts and electrical insulators which require strength and stiffness. It also offers resistance to a wide range of chemicals including many solvents. Alro Plastics offers both homopolymer and copolymer grades of Acetal including three enhanced bearing grade materials.
