2011 and compositional FDA 21 CFR 177.2470 compliant copolymer acetal containing metal and x-ray detectable additives and has bright blue coloring for ease of visual detection. This material has been specifically tailored for use in the food processing and packaging industries where it can easily be traced by different detection systems installed to detect physical contamination in foodstuffs. Additionally Acetron VMX Food Grade presents good mechanical strength stiffness and impact strength making this grade especially well-suited for different applications like gears scrapers grippers etc. ISO ASTM Blue ISO 1183-1 gcm ISO 62 16 Wear rate ISO 7148-2 18 mkm Dynamic Coefficient of Friction - ISO 7148-2 18 ASTM D792 Water absorption at saturation in water of 23 C 73F ASTM D570 17 Chemical Resistance 1.63 ASTM D570 17 100 QTM 55010 19 In.minft.lbs.hrX10- 0.30-0.64 QTM 55007 20 Limiting PV at 100 FPM Limiting PV at 0.1 1 ms cylindrical sleeve bearings Blue 1.63 Specific Gravity Water absorption after 24h immersion in water of 23 C 73F 10E12 QTM 55007 21 ft.lbsin.min 2190 www.mcam.comensupportchemical-resistance-information Note 1 gcm 1000 kgm 1 MPa 1 Nmm 1 kVmm 1 MVm www.mcam.comensupportchemical-resistance-information NYP there is no yield point This table mainly to be used for comparison purposes is a valuable help in the choice of a material. The data listed here fall within the normal range of product properties of dry material.

art derived from raw material supplier data and other publications. 2. Values for this property are only given here for amorphous materials and for materials that do not show a melting temperature PBI PI. 3. Temperature resistance over a period of min. 20000 hours. After this period of time there is a decrease in tensile strength measured at 23 C of about 50 as compared with the original value. The temperature value given here is thus based on the thermal-oxidative degradation which takes place and causes a reduction in properties. Note however that the maximum allowable service temperature depends in many cases essentially on the duration and the magnitude of the mechanical stresses to which the material is subjected. 4. Impact strength decreasing with decreasing temperature the minimum allowable service temperature is practically mainly determined by the extent to which the material is subjected to impact. The value given here is based on unfavourable impact conditions and may consequently not be considered as being the absolute practical limit. 5. These estimated ratings derived from raw material supplier data and other publications are not intended to reflect hazards presented by the material under actual fire conditions. There is no UL File Number available for these stock shapes. 6. Most of the figures given for the mechanical properties are average values of tests run on dry test specimens machined out of rods 40-60 mm when available else out of plate 10-20mm. All tests are done at room temperature 23 73F 7.

Irrespective of any tests that Mitsubishi Chemical Advanced Materials may have carried out

with respect to any Product Mitsubishi Chemical Advanced Materials does not possess expertise in evaluating the suitability of its materials or Products for use in specific applications or products manufactured or offered by the customer respectively. The choice of the most suitable plastics material depends on available chemical resistance data and practical experience but often preliminary testing of the finished plastics part under actual service conditions right chemical concentration temperature and contact time as well as other conditions is required to assess its final suitability for the given application. It thus remains the customers sole responsibility to test and assess the suitability and compatibility of Mitsubishi Chemical Advanced Materials Products for its intended applications processes and uses and to choose those Products which according to its assessment meet the requirements applicable to the specific use of the finished product. The customer undertakes all liability in respect of the application processing or use of the aforementioned information or product or any consequence thereof and shall verify its quality and other properties. 2 of 2
