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

Featured Image by: CTSWebEngine

Dupont Delrin is a great plastic for turning on a machine lathe. It’s simple to turn, although it does require reduced speeds. I use this stuff to make Scottish small pipes chanters. I have bought numerous items from a plastic shop in Anaheim. Small pieces usually ship quickly and everything is always well packed. I have never had a problem with an order.
Between the Delrin and POM-C rods, both materials are very durable and easily machinable, and they have very comparable physical properties. They do look the same, but in practical uses there are a few differences that may make one preferable than the other. It also depends heavily on your application. As with all plastic materials, be sure to check the typical properties data sheet for the applicable properties you may need for your application.
Our Acetal Sheet is definitely our primary 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 preferred grade for food contact and where the dimensional stability is important. Acetal Sheet has the best combination of high mechanical strength, hardness and strength, giving it outstanding sliding properties, electrical insulation, and wear resistance.
Acetal Sheet has countless uses and is certainly valued in the food preparation industry. Because of its low moisture absorption it helped it to achieve Food & Drug Administration approval in addition to its superb sliding abilities which help with very low friction and hard wearing food safe components.
Acetal Sheet stock, perhaps the best of the plastics chosen within the auto industry because of its long lasting dimensional stability and toughness. It delivers solutions for designers to help them produce long lasting and very durable components. Another popular area for Pomalux is in water applications. This environment suits acetal quite because the low moisture absorption will result in components that won’t expand or change dimensions due to contact with water.
