Analyzing differences among Copolymer Acetal and Dupont Delrin Homopolymer in Sheet and Rods

Delrin is the best plastic for turning on a CNC lathe lathe. It’s simple to turn, although it requires slower speeds. I use this stuff to make Scottish small pipes chanters. I have ordered many items from iPlastic. The smaller pieces 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 durable and easily machinable, and they have very similar physical properties. They do appear similar, but for practical use there are some differences that can 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 desired properties you may need for your application.
Our Acetal Sheet is probably our primary material for machining,as it gives an excellent 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 the perfect combination of high mechanical strength, hardness and strength, giving it excellent sliding properties, electrical insulation, and wear resistance.
Acetal Sheet has numerous applications and is especially valued in the food preparation industry. Because of its low moisture absorption it gained Food & Drug Administration approval in addition to its superb sliding abilities which help with very low friction and hard wearing food safe components.
Acetal Sheets are of the engineering plastics used 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 Acetal Sheet is in boating applications. This environment suits acetal quite because the low moisture absorption will result in components that won’t expand or change dimensions due to contact with water.
