Within the plastic family, Acetal is a common name given to a family of thermoplastics. Its chemical name is known to be: "PolyOxyMethylene", or POM. Acetal is usually available in two resins: Copolymer acetal (POM-C), and homopolymer acetal (POM-H); commonly called Delrin®. At Ai Plastics, we offer both grades, in different sizes, cut to size.
Nylon can be used as a replacement for bronze, aluminum, steel and other metals, especially in bearing and wear applications. As a grade, nylon offers excellent wear resistance, high tensile strength as well as a high heat distortion temperature.
This blog will cover the various similarities and differences found between Nylon GS and Nylon GSM.
At its most basic level, PTFE is a synthetic fluoropolymer of tetrafluoroethylene (TFE). It’s a fluorocarbon solid with a high molecular weight compound that is composed solely of carbon and fluorine atoms. PTFE is corrosion resistant, incredibly versatile and can be used in virtually everything from aerospace shuttles and computer cables to pharmaceuticals, telecommunications and even the food and beverage industry!

In many areas of industry, plastics play a significant role in improving the efficiency and competitive standing of customer applications. Due to stringent regulations, the food and beverage sector, the need to provide customers with high –performance engineering plastics has arisen.
Thanks to continuous growth of the oil and gas industry, there is now a growing demand for engineering plastic material. In this respect, high performance polymers offer many advantages over metal, especially when used appropriately
Polycarbonate is naturally transparent, unstructured, thermoplastic. It is used to produce a variety of materials and is particularly useful when impact resistance and transparency are product requirements.
