DELRIN® is a crystalline plastic which offers an excellent balance of properties that bridge the gap between metals and plastics.
DELRIN (Acetal Homopolymer)
DELRIN® is a crystalline plastic which offers an excellent balance of properties that bridge the gap between metals and plastics. DELRIN® possesses high tensile strength, creep resistance and toughness. It also exhibits low moisture absorption. It is chemically resistant to hydrocarbons, solvents and neutral chemicals. These properties along with its fatigue endurance make DELRIN® ideal for many industrial applications.
- Good dimensional stability
- Low moisture absorption
DELRIN® can operate in wet environments with little effect on performance or dimensions.
- Excellent machinability
- High fatigue endurance
- High strength and stiffness properties
- Superior impact and creep resistance
- Chemical resistance to fuels and solvents
- Natural grade is FDA, NSF and USDA compliant
- Good wear and abrasion properties
With its low coefficient of friction and hard and resilient surface, DELRIN® is the material of choice in many wear applications.
DELRIN®s overall combination of physical, tribological and environmental properties make it ideal for many industrial wear and mechanical applications. Parts exposed to a moist or wet environment, such as pump and valve components, are especially appropriate. Other common uses for DELRIN® include gears, bearings, bushings, rollers, fittings and electrical insulator parts.
