Where performance is key, designers choose Delrin®.
Delrin® is typically specified for high-load mechanical applications and precision parts, where strength, stiffness, stability, and reliability are important. It is also used to improve performance in high-wear, high-friction applications.
Compared to acetal copolymers, Delrin® homopolymer offers higher fatigue and creep resistance as well as higher toughness and tensile properties. This enables thinner, lighter part design, and opportunities to reduce part production costs.
In addition to higher yields and faster throughputs during manufacture, the technical advantages of Delrin® can create significant value-in-use—for example, combining discrete components into one molding to decrease assembly operations, reduce complexity and improve recyclability.
