Delrin is the brand name for the Acetal homopolymer first created by DuPont. Variants may also be classified as acetal or acetal homopolymer*, among other things. Dyes can be used to change the color of Delrin from its natural soft white to a variety of various hues. However, black and white are by far the most popular color combinations for Delrin. Our experts are ready to get the precision laser cut Delrin parts your projects needs.
We are the leader in laser cut plastics. Our lasers are specially designed for machining, cutting, and drilling many thermoset and thermoplastic plastics to exacting tolerances.
Common Uses for Delrin:
Delrin is a versatile material that is used in a variety of applications, such as:
- Pump and valve components
- Components of a safety restraints
- Critical conveyor system parts
- Medical devices like surgical staplers
Delrin has better tensile strength, stiffness, creep and fatigue resistance, as well as much higher impact resistance than other polymers of similar composition. Combining these outstanding mechanical qualities in a single material allows for the production of thinner, lighter-weight parts which can reduce overall project costs.
What Makes Delrin a Good Choice for Laser Cut Parts?
Delrin is a high-performance plastic that is ideal for industrial and mechanical applications. Particularly important in applications where the parts will be exposed to moisture or a damp environment.
Delrin is know for it’s low friction coefficient, water absorption resistance, and resistance in environments with high temperatures and erosion exposure. One of the most important differences between Delrin and other materials is that it has a substantially higher yield strength and tensile strength. Delrin does have a little higher hardness than other acetal polymers, but only by a small margin.
