    Good morning.

    We are looking for a white rod that we can use for Mechanical switches with a diameter of 1.36mm and cut to a length of 15.12 – 15.13 mm. The basic properties of the material are high dimensional stability, high wear resistance, low coefficient of friction and light weight characteristics. Is Acetal the right material or should you recommend another? we can send sample for you to verify the material that we are used to have.

    Looking for a rigid material for a roller for a customer. He wants 7″ od, let me know what you think would work.

    • Jesse

      Larry, both Acetal and UHMW would work for your application. Depending on the size of the roller (length) sometimes it is more feasible to cut the diameter from a piece of plate and at other times rod is the avenue to pursue.
