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

Delrin is the perfect plastic for turning on a lathe lathe. It’s pretty easy to turn, however it does require slow speeds. I use this plastic to make Scottish small pipes chanters. I have purchased countless items from a plastic shop in Anaheim. Smaller pieces usually ship promptly and everything is always well packed. I have never had a problem with an order.
Between the Delrin and POM-C rods, both materials are quite tough and easily machinable, as they have very comparable physical properties. They do look the same, but in practical uses there are some differences that may 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 appropriate properties you may need for your application.
Our Acetal Sheet is definitely our best material for machining,giving an nice 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 the perfect combination of high mechanical strength, hardness and strength, giving it excellent sliding properties, electrical insulation, and wear resistance.
Acetal Sheet has countless 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 aid 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 lasting dimensional stability and toughness. It delivers solutions for designers to help them create long lasting and very durable components. Another popular area for sheet Acetal is in marine applications. This environment suits acetal quite because its low moisture absorption results in components that will not expand or alter dimensions due to contact with water.
