What the difference between Copolymer Acetal and Dupont Delrin Homopolymer in Sheet and Rods

Delrin is the best plastic for turning on a lathe lathe. It’s easy to turn, but it requires slow speeds. I’ve used this plastic to make Scottish small pipes chanters. I have ordered numerous items from iPlastic. The small pieces usually ship quickly and everything was well packed. I’ve never had a problem with an order.
Between the Delrin and POM-C rods, both materials are quite tough and easily machinable, and they have comparable physical properties. They look similar, but in practical uses there are a few differences that may make one preferable than the other. It also depends heavily on your application. As with all 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 probably our choice material for machining,giving an great finish both on manual and CNC Machines. Its got a very low moisture absorption making it the ideal grade for food contact and where the dimensional stability is important. 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 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 and its superb sliding abilities which help with very low friction and hard wearing food safe components.
Acetal Sheet is one of the engineering plastics used 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 Sustarin C is in marine applications. This environment suits acetal quite because the low moisture absorption will result in components that will not expand or alter dimensions due to contact with water.
