Tenac (homopolymer) & Tenac C (copolymer) Acetal
- Strength and stiffness
- Creep resistance
- Fatigue resistance
- Friction, abrasion and wear characteristics
- Dimensional stability
- Resistance to oils and organic solvents
- Electrical properties
- Low temperature performance
Tenac C™ Low VOC:
As automakers push to reduce volatile organic compound emissions in automotive interiors, Asahi Kasei Plastic has created an advanced acetal copolymer that exceeds the most stringent of global OEM standards for VOC emissions. Eliminating the need for traditional grease or lubricants, Tenac C™ Low VOC copolymers lend themselves to metal replacement strategies, and assist in reducing automobile weight.
Tenac C™ Low VOC grades are well suited to seat belt locking mechanisms and are currently being used in lumbar support systems, a traditionally metal application.
Tenac C™ EF450:
This electrical static dissipative (ESD) grade possesses the same properties of all Tenac C™ materials, such as strength and stiffness, dimensional stability and fatigue resistance. This commercially proven material is resistant to oils and other organic compounds, making it ideal for metal replacement. Converting from metal to plastic also assists in weight reduction strategies.
With multiple automotive approvals, Tenac C™ EF450 is ideal for use in fuel systems, which usually require electrically conductive materials
Custom Color Capabilities:
Many grades of both Tenac™ and Tenac C™ are ideal for color matching. A pre-colored acetal will maintain a part’s aesthetics while eliminating the need for paint or further processing.
Tenac™ and Tenac C™ acetals which utilize custom coloring are particularly well suited for automotive interior applications.
