Natural AcetalRedco™ Acetal & Redco™ PET brings together the benefits of strength, stiffness, low coefficient of friction, and dimensional stability providing a versatile and easily machinable material that exceeds the life of many parts that are traditionally metal.

Redco™ PET is a popular within the food and beverage industry. PET is preferred in applications because of its strength, thermo-stability and transparency. It also withstands environments with a constant temperature of up to 230°F and is not affected by frequent chlorine wash downs.

Redco™ Acetal is suited for a variety of industries and applications. It acts as an electrical insulator, is FDA Approved for food applications and is an excellent material for use in applications requiring close-tolerances. Acetal withstands environments with a constant temperature up to 180°F.

Neptune™ Blue, Neptune™ X-Ray Detectable, and Neptune™ Metal Detectable are also available as a food grade compliant acetal that is detectable for food processing applications.

Custom colors and sizes are also available upon request.

Advantages of use of Acetal:

  • Resistant to Chemicals
  • Low Water Absorption
  • Resistant to Hydrolysis by Base
