Homopolymer Acetal or Delrin is the perfect plastic for turning on a machine lathe. It is simple to turn, but it requires slower speeds. I’ve used this material to make Scottish small pipes chanters. I have bought countless items from a plastic shop in Anaheim. The smaller parts usually ship quickly and everything was well packed. I’ve never had an issue with an order.
Between the Delrin and Acetal rods, both materials are quite durable and easily machinable, as they have similar physical properties. They appear similar, but for practical use there are some differences that may make one better than the other. It also depends on your application. As with any plastic materials, be sure to check the typical properties data sheet for the applicable properties you may need for your application.
Our Acetal Sheet is definitely our primary material for machining,giving an great finish both on manual and CNC Machines. Its got a very low moisture absorption making it the ideal 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 superb sliding properties, electrical insulation, and wear resistance.
Acetal Sheet has countless 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 excellent sliding abilities which aid with very low friction and hard wearing food safe components.
Acetal Sheet stock, perhaps the best of the plastics used within the automotive industry because of its long lasting dimensional stability and durability. It delivers solutions for designers to help them create long lasting and very durable components. Another popular area for Acetal is in marine applications. This environment suits acetal quite because the low moisture absorption results in components that won’t expand or change dimensions due to contact with water.
