Delrin (Acetal Copolymer & Homopolymer)

Delrin is a trading name for Polyoxymethylene (POM), a high performance plastic often used in engineering precision parts. Benefiting from high rigidity, low friction, and exceptional stability, Delrin’s uses are versatile and myriad. Even without being glass-reinforced, Delrin has the strength to replace metal parts.

Both Homopolymer & Copolymer grades are similar in their overall balance of properties, although each shows some difference from the other in detail. In general, the mechanical properties of the Homopolymer are slightly superior to the Copolymer, although the latter has a higher continuous operating temperature. Delrin AF is Acetal Homopolymer containing PTFE fibre, uniformly dispersed to give a material with improved wear and low friction properties. Glass Filled is Acetal Homopolymer with glass fibre to enhance wear properties.
