Quadrant's Porosity Free Machinable Acetron® GP

Product Announcement from Quadrant Engineering Plastic Products


Quadrant's Porosity Free Machinable Acetron® GP-Image

Quadrant's Acetron® GP POM-C, a food industry favorite, is the only porosity free Acetal product on the market today. Possessing the traits of an Acetal product, machinable Acetron GP POM-C provides strength and stiffness, enhanced dimensional stability and ease of machining. All of that, plus its FDA, USDA, NSF, Canada AG and 3- Dairy Compliant. Why? Tolerance to a wide range of chemicals including many solvents provide wear during repeated cleansing but the Acetron GP porosity free bonus means bacteria can not penetrate its surface. Other materials when tested show bacteria residue even after stringent cleaning. Acetron GP POM-C virtually none. With that confidence Quadrant uses an in-line photometric quality producer to assure every plate and rod is porosity-free then linemarkes it for traceability.

So bring on the Pepperoni, Mushrooms and plenty of cheese, the bacteria can rest in someone else's food.
