Why you should use Acetal/ Delrin

  • Both Delrin and Acetal are FDA Compliant
  • Both are very stiff and have excellent dimensional stability
  • Are self lubricating, Excellent Wear and Abrasion Resistance
  • Cuts extremely well with standard cutting tools
  • Delrin AF (PTFE Filled), Glass Filled and Specialty Grades Available
  • Delrin Rod and Plate have similar properties and frequently replace: Noryl, Nylon and PET materials

[/st_item_tab][st_item_tab heading=”Applications” icon=”fa fa-sitemap” id_wrapper=”elm_59396a201e59b” ]This materials is…an excellent machining material – a favorite of machinists. Works like a soft brass, and has exceptional dimensional stability. It comes as a stress relieved material, however if you plan to do extensive machining, you may need to stress relieve the parts prior to final pass. Rods are machined well in lathe and mill, sheets are machined or cut in most common machine tools.

  • Excellent Machining
  • Low co-efficient of Friction
  • Very low moisture resistance

The work horse of the mechanical plastics family, it is one of the most popular grades of material we supply. Other brand or trade names: Pomalux, Acetron, Ensital, Unital, Tecaform, Ultraform, Celcon, BASF, Hostaform, Ticona, and Dupont Delrin. Occasionally we are asked for the difference betweenn Acetal and HDPE – here is an explanation.
Applications – Frequently used in:
Acetal

  • Wear and Slide machined parts from Rod and Plate
  • FDA, NSF, 3-A, and USDA Compliant Machined Parts
  • Easily machined parts for water / moisture environments
  • Critical tolerance and dimensionally stable parts
  • 185 degrees F Continuous Temperature Environments
  • Custom formulations, PTFE – TFE Filled for wear resistance
  • Rod and Rods, Sheet and Sheets for numerous applications

Acetal Sheet and Rod Specifications:
In stock we normally carry one of these resins: BASF Ultraform H4320, Kepital F10-02, or Hostaform M25. Current Certifications and Specifications used for Acetal – Delrin: FDA, USDA, NSF, ASTM D6778 Superseded or out dated Specifications for Acetal – Delrin: L-P-392, ASTM D4181

Some reasons to choose Homopolymer vs. Copolymer
Both POM grades have very similar properties. Our clients seem to prefer the Acetal over the Homopolymer materials due to the inherent center-line porosity in the Delrin Homo-polymer version. This means, that along the center of a rod, or the middle of a sheet, there is a band, of area of tiny porous material. This can weaken or cause problems with a finished part, and in extreme cases you may see blow by or leakage at this center line. While Delrin is a brand name, it is a POM Homo-polymer. The most requested and popular item we supply is the Acetal; the POM Co-polymer resin made by one of the other big resin manufacturers – like BASF or Celanese/Tacona. Both of these resins are readily available. On this website, we supply the more popular Co-Polymer by client request. If you would prefer the Delrin brand Sheet or Rod, drop us a line, send us an email – we will be happy to ship the requested material for you. We don’t make judgments on suitability of material for your application, we just supply what you, our clients ask for. Please, just let us know ahead of time if you have a preference.

Acetal and Delrin® Rod and Sheet

Delrin®, Co-Polymer, Homo-polymer, Celcon®, BASF

All Are P.O.M. (PolyOxyMethylene)

Stocked in Sheet-Sheets, Rod-Rods, Block, Strip and Slab
Acetal_Delrin

This material is used frequently in a self lubricating bearing surface or slide type applications. Extremely low water absorption makes this a perfect material for valves, seats and moving parts in water filled areas (most white parts in toilet tanks are this material). Crisp machining and tight tolerances are easily obtainable with these materials.

[/st_item_tab][st_item_tab heading=”Applications” icon=”fa fa-sitemap” id_wrapper=”elm_59396a2023d75″ ]This materials is…an excellent machining material – a favorite of machinists. Works like a soft brass, and has exceptional dimensional stability. It comes as a stress relieved material, however if you plan to do extensive machining, you may need to stress relieve the parts prior to final pass. Rods are machined well in lathe and mill, sheets are machined or cut in most common machine tools.

  • Excellent Machining
  • Low co-efficient of Friction
  • Very low moisture resistance

The work horse of the mechanical plastics family, it is one of the most popular grades of material we supply. Other brand or trade names: Pomalux, Acetron, Ensital, Unital, Tecaform, Ultraform, Celcon, BASF, Hostaform, Ticona, and Dupont Delrin. Occasionally we are asked for the difference betweenn Acetal and HDPE – here is an explanation.
Applications – Frequently used in:
Acetal

  • Wear and Slide machined parts from Rod and Plate
  • FDA, NSF, 3-A, and USDA Compliant Machined Parts
  • Easily machined parts for water / moisture environments
  • Critical tolerance and dimensionally stable parts
  • 185 degrees F Continuous Temperature Environments
  • Custom formulations, PTFE – TFE Filled for wear resistance
  • Rod and Rods, Sheet and Sheets for numerous applications

Acetal Sheet and Rod Specifications:
In stock we normally carry one of these resins: BASF Ultraform H4320, Kepital F10-02, or Hostaform M25. Current Certifications and Specifications used for Acetal – Delrin: FDA, USDA, NSF, ASTM D6778 Superseded or out dated Specifications for Acetal – Delrin: L-P-392, ASTM D4181

Some reasons to choose Homopolymer vs. Copolymer
Both POM grades have very similar properties. Our clients seem to prefer the Acetal over the Homopolymer materials due to the inherent center-line porosity in the Delrin Homo-polymer version. This means, that along the center of a rod, or the middle of a sheet, there is a band, of area of tiny porous material. This can weaken or cause problems with a finished part, and in extreme cases you may see blow by or leakage at this center line. While Delrin is a brand name, it is a POM Homo-polymer. The most requested and popular item we supply is the Acetal; the POM Co-polymer resin made by one of the other big resin manufacturers – like BASF or Celanese/Tacona. Both of these resins are readily available. On this website, we supply the more popular Co-Polymer by client request. If you would prefer the Delrin brand Sheet or Rod, drop us a line, send us an email – we will be happy to ship the requested material for you. We don’t make judgments on suitability of material for your application, we just supply what you, our clients ask for. Please, just let us know ahead of time if you have a preference.
