Comparing Copolymer Acetal and Homopolymer Acetal in Sheet or Plate and Round Rod

Delrin is a great plastic for turning on a CNC lathe lathe. It is simple to turn, although it requires reduced speeds. I’ve used this stuff to make Scottish small pipes chanters. I have bought numerous items from Industrial Plastic. Smaller parts always ship quickly and everything is always well packed. I’ve never had an issue with an order.
Between the Delrin and POM-C rods, both materials are incredibly durable and easily machinable, and they have very comparable physical properties. They appear the same, but in practical use there are some differences that can make one preferable than the other. It also depends on your application. As with any 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 best material for machining,as it gives an great finish both on manual and CNC Machines. Its got a pretty 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 many applications and is certainly of value in the food preparation industry. Because of its low moisture absorption it gained Food & Drug Administration approval in addition to its superb sliding abilities which help with very low friction and hard wearing food safe components.
Acetal Sheet is one of the engineering plastics chosen within the automotive industry because of its long term dimensional stability and toughness. It delivers solutions for designers to help them produce long lasting and very durable components. Another popular area for Acetal Sheet is in marine applications. This environment suits acetal quite because the low moisture absorption results in components that won’t expand or alter dimensions due to contact with water.
