I am exploring the possibility of replacing worm gears used in Windshield Wipers and Power Windows of automobiles,made of stainless steel(AISI 1144 steel), with an alternative material.Can you suggest any specific material.I heard acetal is a good candidate,but,there are many varieties in this material itself,how can i decide on the rigght candidate, how much would that cost,and where can I get details like the creep, temperature range for this material,etc.
any relevant data would be of great help.
