Acetal/Delrin Sheet, Rod, Film & Tube
Acetal and Delrin represent a crystalline thermoplastic polymer that possesses many qualities that make them a leading choice for machined plastic parts. Acetal‘s properties include low water absorption, superior creep resistance, high tensile strength, and high melt point. The low water absorption, coupled with the high tensile strength and modulus, relate to an ability to maintain excellent dimensional stability in close tolerance fabricated parts.
The chemical resistance of acetal includes resistance to hydrocarbons, solvents and neutral chemicals. In addition, most of the materials properties are maintained in operating temperatures up to 180°F. The combination of the physical properties and ease of fabrication makes acetal an excellent choice for machined mechanical parts. We have Acetal/Delrin available in sheet, rod, film, and tube for all applications.
