How to compare Dupont Delrin and Acetal Copolymer in Sheet or Plate and Round Rod

Dupont Delrin is a great plastic for turning on a machine lathe. It is pretty easy to turn, but it does require slow speeds. I’ve used this material to make Scottish small pipes chanters. I have bought many items from a plastic shop in Anaheim. The smaller pieces always ship promptly and everything was well packed. I have never had a problem with an order.
Between the Delrin and POM-C rods, both materials are exceptionally durable and easily machinable, as they have comparable physical properties. They do look the same, but in practical uses there are a few differences that can make one better than the other. It also depends 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 probably 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 ideal grade for food contact and where the dimensional stability is important. Acetal Sheet has the best combination of high mechanical strength, hardness and toughness, giving it superb sliding properties, electrical insulation, and wear resistance.
Acetal Sheet has numerous applications and is certainly 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 help with very low friction and hard wearing food safe components.
Acetal Sheet stock, perhaps the best of the engineering plastics chosen within the auto industry because of its long lasting dimensional stability and durability. It provides solutions for designers to help them produce long lasting and very durable components. Another popular area for Sustarin C is in moisture applications. This environment suits acetal well because its low moisture absorption results in components that will not expand or alter dimensions due to contact with water.
