Comparing Dupont Delrin and Acetal Copolymer in Sheet and Rods

Featured Image by: CTSWebEngine

Delrin is the best plastic for turning on a lathe lathe. It’s very easy to turn, although it does require slow speeds. I’ve used this plastic to make Scottish small pipes chanters. I have bought many items from Industrial Plastic. The smaller parts usually ship promptly and everything is always well packed. I’ve never had an issue with an order.
Between the Delrin and Acetal rods, both materials are quite durable and easily machinable, and they have comparable physical properties. They do appear similar, but in practical uses there are a few differences that can make one better than the other. It also depends heavily on your application. As with any plastic materials, be sure to check the typical properties data sheet for the desired properties you may need for your application.
Our Acetal Sheet is probably our best material for machining,as it gives an great 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 important. Acetal Sheet has an ideal combination of high mechanical strength, hardness and strength, giving it outstanding sliding properties, electrical insulation, and wear resistance.
Acetal Sheet has numerous applications and is certainly of value in the food preparation industry. Because of its low moisture absorption it gained Food & Drug Administration approval in addition to its excellent sliding abilities which aid with very low friction and hard wearing food safe components.
Acetal Sheet is one of the engineering plastics used within the auto industry because of its long term dimensional stability and durability. It provides solutions for designers to help them create long lasting and very durable components. Another popular area for Acetal Sheet is in marine applications. This environment suits acetal well because the low moisture absorption results in components that won’t expand or alter dimensions due to contact with water.
