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

Delrin is a great plastic for turning on a machine lathe. It is very easy to turn, but it requires slow speeds. I’ve used this stuff to make Scottish small pipes chanters. I have purchased countless items from a plastic shop in Anaheim. The smaller parts usually ship promptly and everything has been well packed. I have never had a problem with an order.
Between the Delrin and POM-C rods, both materials are quite durable and easily machinable, as they have very similar physical properties. They do appear the same, but for practical uses there are a few differences that can make one better than the other. It also depends heavily 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 definitely 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 usual grade for food contact and where the dimensional stability is critical. Acetal Sheet has the best combination of high mechanical strength, durability and strength, giving it excellent sliding properties, electrical insulation, and wear resistance.
Acetal Sheet has countless applications and is particularly of value in the food preparation industry. Because of its low moisture absorption it helped it to achieve 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 chosen within the auto industry because of its long lasting dimensional stability and durability. It delivers solutions for designers to help them produce long lasting and very durable components. Another popular area for sheet Acetal is in boating applications. This environment suits acetal well because the low moisture absorption results in components that will not expand or change dimensions due to contact with water.
