Good Alternative to Kocetal WE301LO?

Good Alternative to Kocetal WE301LO?

Hi all,
Long time lurker first time poster. I'm working on an Acetal part that turns out is not approved by our customer for certain colors we are using and needs a material change. Any thoughts on what material would be comparable to Kocetal WE301LO (http://www.kolonplastics.com/board/data/eng/284/WR...) as far as shrinkage and mechanical properties go?

Per the customer's request, in addition to looking at other Acetal brands, I'm having to look outside of acetal altogether which is why I've come to ask the experts rather than waste days going through material specs. There are soooo many materials out there that admittedly, I'm not even sure where to start. I don't necessarily need a brand name, just a material type should be fine if anyone can think of one. Thanks in advance!
