The copolymer grade is the ideal combination of strength, stiffness and wear resistance. It absorbs very little moisture, is easily machinable and is genuinely porosity-free, making it the preferred grade for food contact and medical applications. The product exhibits an elevated resistance to hydrolysis, strong alkalis and thermal-oxidative degradation when compared to acetal homopolymer.
