DELRIN® (Acetal Homopolymer) 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.
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.
