What the difference between Copolymer Acetal and Homopolymer Acetal in Round rods or sheets and plate

Dupont Delrin is a great plastic for turning on a lathe lathe. It’s very easy to turn, but it does require slower speeds. I have used this plastic to make Scottish small pipes chanters. I have bought many items from iPlastic. Smaller parts usually ship promptly and everything was well packed. I’ve never had a problem with an order.
Between the Delrin and Acetal rods, both materials are very tough and easily machinable, as they have very comparable physical properties. They appear similar, but for practical use there are some differences that may make one preferable than the other. It also depends heavily on your application. As with any 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 definitely our best material for machining,as it gives an great finish both on manual and CNC Machines. It has 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, hardness and toughness, giving it excellent sliding properties, electrical insulation, and wear resistance.
Acetal Sheet has numerous applications and is particularly of value 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 used 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 Acetal is in marine applications. This environment suits acetal well because its low moisture absorption will result in components that won’t expand or change dimensions due to contact with water.
