Why you may pick POM H and POM C acetals in Sheet or Plate and Round Rod

Homopolymer Acetal or Delrin is a great plastic for turning on a lathe lathe. It’s simple to turn, however it requires slower speeds. I use this material to make Scottish small pipes chanters. I have bought numerous items from Industrial Plastic. Small pieces usually ship promptly and everything was well packed. I’ve never had an issue 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 look the same, but for practical use there are a few differences that may make one better 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 appropriate properties you may need for your application.
Our Acetal Sheet is definitely our best material for machining,giving an great finish both on manual and CNC Machines. It has a pretty low moisture absorption making it the preferred grade for food contact and where the dimensional stability is important. Acetal Sheet has the best 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 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 lasting dimensional stability and durability. It offers solutions for designers to help them create long lasting and very durable components. Another popular area for Tecaform AH is in marine applications. This environment suits acetal quite because its low moisture absorption results in components that won’t expand or change dimensions due to contact with water.
