FDA-compliant colored acetal now available faster and in low quantities for machined parts

Quadrant EPP : 06 June, 2006  (New Product)
Improved process technology now allows Quadrant Engineering Plastic Products to offer seven standard FDA-compliant colors of Acetron GP acetal rod in small quantities and drastically-reduced lead times.
Improved process technology now allows Quadrant Engineering Plastic Products to offer seven standard FDA-compliant colors of Acetron GP acetal rod in small quantities and drastically-reduced lead times.

The new capability in colored stock shapes for machining overcomes the historical two to three months' lead time and high minimum order volume requirements due to resin and shapes production limitations. All of the new Acetron GP colors meet the requirements of FDA Regulation 21 CFR, Section 177.2470 (e)(1),(2).

The seven standard colors are intended for parts in processing and packaging equipment for food, dairy processing and pharmaceutical products. They are also ideal where change-out parts need to be quickly and easily identified for use on specific processes.

According to Terry Folk, Business Manager, 'This standard set of colors gives engineers access to Acetron GP acetal's porosity-free, low stress and cost-effective performance in machined parts, while adding increased functionality to their end product. The breakthrough is our ability to compress the time and volume formerly necessary for colors from the resin supplier and in our own shapes production.'

Folk noted that the colors are strictly intended for industrial, pharmaceutical and food-related applications, and are not suitable for medical orthopedic use, at this time.

Quadrant's Acetron GP, in red, blue, green, yellow, orange, gray and brown, is available within 3-4 weeks from date of order, in quantities of about 200 lbs per size and color, depending on diameter. Sample discs are available through Quadrant and their Authorized Distributor Network.
