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

Delrin is a great plastic for turning on a lathe lathe. It’s pretty easy to turn, but it does require reduced speeds. I have used this stuff to make Scottish small pipes chanters. I have ordered many items from iPlastic. The smaller pieces usually ship promptly and everything is always 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, as they have similar physical properties. They do look similar, 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 all plastic materials, make sure to check the typical properties data sheet for the applicable properties you may need for your application.
Our Acetal Sheet is definitely our choice 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 perfect combination of high mechanical strength, durability and strength, giving it superb sliding properties, electrical insulation, and wear resistance.
Acetal Sheet has countless applications and is especially of value in the food preparation industry. Because of its low moisture absorption it helped it to achieve 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 chosen within the auto industry because of its long term dimensional stability and durability. It provides solutions for designers to help them create long lasting and very durable components. Another popular area for Acetal is in water applications. This environment suits acetal quite because its low moisture absorption will result in components that will not expand or change dimensions due to contact with water.
