Delrin® 150 is an acetal thermoplastic with high strength and great stability. It offers great abrasion resistance and machining properties.
Acetal provides high strength and stiffness, dimensional stability, low moisture absorption, a low coefficient of friction, good wear and abrasion properties, good chemical resistance, and is easy to machine. Moisture, lubricants, and solvents including gasoline have little effect on acetal, making them ideal for parts incorporating self-threading screws or interference fits.
High Strength & Stiffness
Due to rigidity, resilience, toughness and strength, acetal does not become brittle even with long-term exposure to unfavorable conditions including extremely high temperatures.
- Excellent moisture and chemical resistance
- Has center line porosity
- High tensile strength
- Excellent fatigue endurance
- Excellent dimensional stability
- Good electrical properties
- Good creep resistance
- Natural lubricant
- Excellent machinability
We love this material for robotics and machine parts. It’s also great for protective wear surfaces. Please review our Design Guidelines here.
