Compare and contrast Copolymer Acetal and Homopolymer Acetal in Sheet and Rods

Dupont Delrin is a great plastic for turning on a machine lathe. It is very easy to turn, but it requires reduced speeds. I have used this stuff to make Scottish small pipes chanters. I have ordered many items from iPlastic. The smaller parts usually ship quickly and everything is always well packed. I’ve never had a problem with an order.
Between the Delrin and POM-C rods, both materials are exceptionally 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 better than the other. It also depends on your application. As with all plastic materials, make 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 nice finish both on manual and CNC Machines. It has a pretty low moisture absorption making it the ideal grade for food contact and where the dimensional stability is critical. Acetal Sheet has the perfect combination of high mechanical strength, durability and toughness, giving it outstanding sliding properties, electrical insulation, and wear resistance.
Acetal Sheet has countless uses and is especially 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 plastics chosen within the automotive industry because of its long lasting dimensional stability and durability. It provides solutions for designers to help them create long lasting and very durable components. Another popular area for Sustarin C is in marine 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.
