What kind of plastic is Delrin?

acetal homopolymer
Delrin® acetal homopolymer (Polyoxymethylene POM) is the ideal material in parts designed to replace metal. It combines low-friction and high-wear resistance with the high strength and stiffness such applications require.

Is Pom the same as Delrin?

Acetal is the common name for a family of thermoplastics with the chemical name “PolyOxyMethylene”, or POM. Acetal is available in two general types of resins: Copolymer acetal (POM-C), and homopolymer acetal (POM-H); commonly called Delrin®. Each type of acetal has its own set of advantages and disadvantages.

Is Delrin chemical resistance?

Is Delrin stronger than ABS?

Delrin (DuPont’s brand of acetal) and ABS are both plastics. Delrin is referred to as an “engineering” plastic because it is stronger and more resistant to distortion under load. ABS is “commodity” plastic because it is cheaper and easier to mold, however because of it’s flexibility, is relatively hard to break.

Which is heavier aluminum or plastic?

Regular aluminum has a density of 2.7 grams per cubic centimeter, which is a bit heavier than magnesium (1.7 grams per cc) or ABS plastic (1.08 grams per cc) at the same size.

What is the strongest type of plastic?

Strength, durability and impact resistance Polycarbonate is the strongest plastic that is 200 times stronger than glass and is warranted against breakage or cracks.

Is Delrin resistant to acid?

Delrin is not suitable for use with acids, bases, or oxidizing agents.
