What the difference between Copolymer Acetal and Dupont Delrin Homopolymer in Sheet and Rods

Latest Newns

Dupont Delrin is the perfect plastic for turning on a lathe lathe. It’s easy to turn, although it does require slow speeds. I use this plastic to make Scottish small pipes chanters. I have purchased many items from Industrial Plastic. The small parts usually ship quickly and everything has been well packed. I’ve never had a problem with an order.
Between the Delrin and Acetal rods, both materials are incredibly durable and easily machinable, as they have similar physical properties. They appear the same, but for practical uses there are some differences that may make one preferable than the other. It also depends heavily on your application. As with all plastic materials, make sure to check the typical properties data sheet for the applicable properties you may need for your application.
Our Acetal Sheet is probably our best material for machining,as it gives an nice finish both on manual and CNC Machines. Its got a pretty low moisture absorption making it the usual grade for food contact and where the dimensional stability is critical. Acetal Sheet has an ideal combination of high mechanical strength, durability and toughness, giving it outstanding sliding properties, electrical insulation, and wear resistance.
Acetal Sheet has many uses and is certainly of value in the food preparation industry. Because of its low moisture absorption it helped it to achieve Food & Drug Administration approval along with its superb sliding abilities which help with very low friction and hard wearing food safe components.
Acetal Sheets are of the plastics used within the automotive industry because of its long lasting dimensional stability and durability. It provides solutions for designers to help them produce long lasting and very durable components. Another popular area for Pomalux is in marine applications. This environment suits acetal well because the low moisture absorption will result in components that will not expand or change dimensions due to contact with water.
