||DURACON® is a crystalline thermoplastic acetal copolymer. The primary raw material trioxane, a trimer of formaldehyde.
The thermoplastic adopts a copolymer structure in which polyoxymethylene (-C-O) and carbon-carbon (-C-C- bond) comonomer groups are incorporated into its main chain. Therefore the copolymer has superior chemical and thermal stability, compared with acetal homopolymer.
Acetal co-polymer is well-balanced in terms of mechanical, chemical and thermal properties, and its superior moldability allows it to be widely employed in various industrial fields.
