Comparing POM H and POM C acetals in Sheet or Plate and Round Rod

Dupont Delrin is the best plastic for turning on a machine lathe. It’s pretty easy to turn, however it requires reduced speeds. I’ve used this stuff to make Scottish small pipes chanters. I have purchased countless items from iPlastic. 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 very durable and easily machinable, and they have very comparable physical properties. They appear the same, but for practical use there are a few differences that may make one better than the other. It also depends on your application. As with any 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 choice material for machining,giving an great finish both on manual and CNC Machines. It has a very low moisture absorption making it the ideal grade for food contact and where the dimensional stability is critical. Acetal Sheet has an ideal combination of high mechanical strength, hardness and strength, giving it excellent sliding properties, electrical insulation, and wear resistance.
Acetal Sheet has countless uses and is particularly valued in the food preparation industry. Because of its low moisture absorption it helped it to achieve Food & Drug Administration approval in addition to its excellent sliding abilities which help with very low friction and hard wearing food safe components.
Acetal Sheet is one of the engineering plastics chosen within the automotive industry because of its long lasting dimensional stability and toughness. It offers solutions for designers to help them create long lasting and very durable components. Another popular area for Sustarin C is in boating applications. This environment suits acetal well because the low moisture absorption results in components that won’t expand or change dimensions due to contact with water.
