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).

Polymer Name: Thermoplastic Vulcanizate (TPV), Thermoplastic Silicone Vulcanizate (TPSiV)
End Uses: Electrical Components, Sporting Goods, Electrical/Electronic Applications
When you combine the strength, toughness, and abrasion resistance of a thermoplastic elastomer with the soft silkiness, UV and chemical resistance, and colorability of silicone, you get DuPont TPSiV®. TPSiV® products incorporate vulcanized silicone modules in a thermoplastic matrix. But unlike traditional thermoplastic vulcanizates (TPVs), they can be recycled and reused in your manufacturing processes. This makes them remarkably versatile and reliable for a range of applications. Durable, yet both silky and non-tacky (dirt resistant), TPSiV® Thermoplastic Elastomers deliver exceptional performance and esthetics in products ranging from consumer electronics to plumbing supplies.
