Analyzing differences amoung POM H and POM C acetals in Sheet or Plate and Round Rod
Delrin is a great plastic for turning on a machine lathe. It’s simple to turn, but it does require slower speeds. I’ve used this plastic to make Scottish small pipes chanters. I have purchased countless items from a plastic shop in Anaheim. Smaller pieces usually ship quickly and everything is always well packed. I’ve never had an issue with an order.
Between the Delrin and Acetal rods, both materials are incredibly tough and easily machinable, and they have comparable physical properties. They do appear the same, but for practical use there are a few differences that can make one preferable than the other. It also depends heavily on your application. As with all plastic materials, make sure to check the typical properties data sheet for the appropriate properties you may need for your application.
Our Acetal Sheet is definitely our best material for machining,giving an nice finish both on manual and CNC Machines. It has a very low moisture absorption making it the usual grade for food contact and where the dimensional stability is important. Acetal Sheet has the perfect combination of high mechanical strength, hardness and strength, giving it excellent sliding properties, electrical insulation, and wear resistance.
Acetal Sheet has numerous uses and is especially of value in the food preparation industry. Because of its low moisture absorption it gained Food & Drug Administration approval along with its excellent sliding abilities which aid with very low friction and hard wearing food safe components.
Acetal Sheets are of the engineering plastics chosen within the auto industry because of its long lasting dimensional stability and toughness. It offers solutions for designers to help them produce long lasting and very durable components. Another popular area for Acetal is in marine applications. This environment suits acetal well because the low moisture absorption results in components that won’t expand or alter dimensions due to contact with water.
