Compare and contrast Dupont Delrin and Acetal Copolymer in Round rods or sheets and plate

Delrin is a great plastic for turning on a lathe lathe. It’s pretty easy to turn, however it requires slow speeds. I have used this stuff to make Scottish small pipes chanters. I have purchased countless items from a plastic shop in Anaheim. The small parts usually ship promptly 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 incredibly durable and easily machinable, and they have very comparable physical properties. They appear the same, but in practical use there are some differences that may make one better than the other. It also depends on your application. As with all plastic materials, be sure to check the typical properties data sheet for the appropriate properties you may need for your application.
Our Acetal Sheet is probably our best material for machining,giving an excellent finish both on manual and CNC Machines. Its got a very low moisture absorption making it the preferred grade for food contact and where the dimensional stability is critical. Acetal Sheet has the perfect combination of high mechanical strength, hardness and strength, giving it outstanding sliding properties, electrical insulation, and wear resistance.
Acetal Sheet has numerous uses and is especially valued in the food preparation industry. Because of its low moisture absorption it gained Food & Drug Administration approval and its superb sliding abilities which aid with very low friction and hard wearing food safe components.
Acetal Sheet is one of the engineering plastics used within the auto industry because of its long lasting dimensional stability and durability. It offers solutions for designers to help them produce long lasting and very durable components. Another popular area for Pomalux 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.
