Acetron® MD (POM-C) is a wear-resistant POM (acetal) that provides a unique combination of light weight, chemical resistance and ability to perform in moist/wet applications – while being fully metal detectable to >27mm3. Acetron® MD (POM-C) allows food processors and packagers to gain the efficiencies that polymer wear materials provide and while minimizing their investment.
Acetron® MD (POM-C) is detectable with existing equipment present in most processing lines. This material meets the various needs within the food, medical and pharmaceutical production environment. Acetron® MD (POM-C) has been successfully used in meat and poultry processing as well as dairy and cheese production.
