Compare and contrast POM H and POM C acetals in Sheet or Plate and Round Rod

Delrin is a great plastic for turning on a lathe lathe. It is simple to turn, however it requires slow speeds. I use this plastic to make Scottish small pipes chanters. I have bought many items from a plastic shop in Anaheim. The smaller parts always ship promptly and everything has been well packed. I’ve never had an issue with an order.
Between the Delrin and POM-C rods, both materials are very durable and easily machinable, and they have very similar physical properties. They look similar, but in practical use there are a few differences that can 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. Its got a very low moisture absorption making it the usual grade for food contact and where the dimensional stability is important. Acetal Sheet has the best combination of high mechanical strength, durability and toughness, giving it excellent sliding properties, electrical insulation, and wear resistance.
Acetal Sheet has countless uses and is especially valued in the food preparation industry. Because of its low moisture absorption it helped it to achieve Food & Drug Administration approval along with its superb sliding abilities which aid with very low friction and hard wearing food safe components.
Acetal Sheets are of the engineering plastics chosen within the automotive industry because of its long term dimensional stability and durability. It offers solutions for designers to help them produce long lasting and very durable components. Another popular area for Acetal is in boating applications. This environment suits acetal well because its low moisture absorption results in components that won’t expand or alter dimensions due to contact with water.
