Delrin® - The high-performance acetal resin that global customers trust
DuPont™ Delrin® acetal homopolymer resin is a highly-crystalline engineering thermoplastic that industry leaders specify for high load mechanical applications, such as gears, safety restraints, door systems, conveyor belts, healthcare delivery devices and components across a diverse range of products and industries
Delrin® acetal (Polyoxymethylene POM) combines low friction and high wear resistance with the stiffness and strength needed in parts designed to replace metal. It provides a wide operating temperature range (-40°C to 120°C), good colorability and good mating with metal and other polymers, as well as dimensional stability in high precision molding.
When compared to acetal copolymer, Delrin® acetal homopolymer offers higher tensile strength, stiffness, and creep resistance, and significantly higher impact resistance, allowing for thinner and lighter part design, shorter molding cycles and the potential for cost reductions.
Authentic Delrin® acetal resin is available from DuPont only and stock shapes (sheets, rods, tubes) of Delrin® through distributors globally.
How to Maximize the Property Advantages of Delrin® Acetal Homopolymer Over Acetal Copolymer
Delrin® properties of the Delrin® 100 series make it the premier resin of choice in the most demanding applications where the ultimate in toughness combined with high strength, creep and fatigue resistance are required.
Find out about the latest grades of Delrin® acetal resin with properties tailored for emerging market and application needs. Current features include low emission homopolymer grades and medium-high viscosity acetals.
