End Uses: General Purpose, Molds/Dies/Tools, Automotive Safety Pushbutton

Leading companies across the globe specify Delrin® acetal resin from Dupont for high-load mechanical applications, including gears, safety restraints, door systems, conveyor belts, healthcare delivery devices, and other demanding products and parts. Delrin® acetal (Polyoxymethylene POM) is an ideal ingredient in parts designed to replace metal. It combines low-friction and high-wear resistance with the stiffness and strength such applications require. It provides a wide operating temperature range (-40° C to 120° C) and exceptional colorability. It also mates well with metal and other polymers, and it offers dimensional stability in precision molding. Compared to acetal copolymer, Delrin® acetal homopolymer offers higher tensile strength, stiffness, creep and fatigue resistance, and significantly higher impact resistance. The combination of these excellent mechanical properties in a single material allows for thinner, lighter-weight parts, shorter molding cycles, and potential cost savings thanks to its higher impact resistance. Authentic Delrin® acetal resin is available exclusively from DuPont distributors, in stock shapes (sheets, rods, tubes).
