Black Extruded Acetal Sheet

 

Acetal Overview
What is acetal?

Acetal is a high strength engineering plastic known for its low coefficient of friction and exceptional wear properties in dry and wet environments. Acetal is easy to machine and has resistances to moisture, solvents, and chemicals.

Customers Also Asked:
Is Delrin® stronger than acetal?

Delrin® is considered slightly stronger than acetal - it has greater stiffness and mechanical strength, including tensile strength, impact resistance, and creep resistance. However, acetal retains its properties better than Delrin® at higher temperatures and has a better resistance to hot water and basic solutions.

Is Delrin® and acetal copolymer?

Delrin® is a trade name for acetal homopolymer, while acetal is the name the plastics industry uses to refer to acetal copolymer. Delrin® has similar mechanical properties to copolymer acetal, but is different in a few key areas thanks to its uniform crystalline structure. Compared to acetal, Delrin® exhibits higher stiffness and creep resistance, and is generally slightly better overall when comparing mechanical strength.

What is acetal sheet Delrin®?

Delrin® is a brand name for acetal homopolymer. Like acetal, Delrin® is known for its low coefficient of friction and excellent wear properties. However, Delrin® has better mechanical properties than acetal such as a higher tensile strength and greater impact strength.
