ZL Engineering Plastics Inc. Now Inventories 1/4 Inch Acetal Plate
February 10, 2004 -- Natural copolymer acetal plate and black copolymer acetal plate measuring 1/4" thick x 48" x 96" are now available immediately from stock at ZL Engineering Plastics. ZL had previously offered acetal plate from 3/8" to 5" thick.
"As a direct response to customer requests we are expanding our inventory to include thin gauge plate. Parts of any thickness machined from acetal offer low water absorption for excellent dimensional stability," said Greg Waak, President of ZL-East.
Acetal is typically used when application temperatures are below 180°F., high strength and stiffness, parts with close tolerances, or moderate wear resistance in a wet environment is required. Acetal is a popular material choice for bearings, bushings, gears, material handling equipment parts, electronic/electronic components, and parts found in pump assemblies.
