All About Delrin® Thermoplastic

It’s a plastic that can easily compete with the strength of metal. DELRIN® is an acetal resin of crystalline plastic formed from the polymerization of formaldehyde. Its interlocking helical molecules and high crystallinity give it excellent mechanical properties, and it is available in sheets, rods, and tubes.

The key properties of this plastic include:

  • High mechanical strength and rigidity
  • Toughness and high resistance to repeated impacts
  • Long-term fatigue endurance
  • Excellent resistance to moisture, gasoline, solvents, and many other neutral chemicals
  • Excellent dimensional stability
  • Good resilience and resistance to creep
  • Natural lubricity
  • Wide end-use temperature range
  • Good electrical insulating characteristics

Due to these properties, DELRIN is used for many components, including gears, door system components, conveyor systems, medical delivery devices and even zip fasteners. It’s suited for many industrial applications, including:

  • Automotive applications
  • Consumer products
  • Healthcare
  • Industrial applications
