Why you may choose either Copolymer Acetal and Dupont Delrin Homopolymer in Sheet and Rods

Dupont Delrin is a great plastic for turning on a lathe lathe. It is easy to turn, but it does require reduced speeds. I have used this stuff to make Scottish small pipes chanters. I have ordered many items from Industrial Plastic. Smaller pieces usually ship promptly and everything was well packed. I’ve never had an issue with an order.
Between the Delrin and POM-C rods, both materials are very tough and easily machinable, and they have comparable physical properties. They look similar, but in practical uses there are a few differences that may make one preferable than the other. It also depends on your application. As with any 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 probably our primary material for machining,giving an nice finish both on manual and CNC Machines. Its got a very 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 strength, giving it outstanding sliding properties, electrical insulation, and wear resistance.
Acetal Sheet has many applications and is certainly valued in the food preparation industry. Because of its low moisture absorption it gained Food & Drug Administration approval along with its superb sliding abilities which help with very low friction and hard wearing food safe components.
Acetal Sheet stock, perhaps the best of the engineering plastics chosen within the automotive industry because of its long lasting dimensional stability and durability. It delivers solutions for designers to help them produce long lasting and very durable components. Another popular area for sheet Acetal is in water applications. This environment suits acetal well because its low moisture absorption results in components that will not expand or alter dimensions due to contact with water.
