Delrin® - An Industry-Leading, High-Performance Acetal Resin
Delrin® acetal homopolymer combines lubricity and wear resistance with the stiffness and strength needed in parts designed to replace metal.
DuPont™ Delrin® acetal homopolymer resin is a highly-crystalline polymer that has high stiffness and strength without the need for glass reinforcement. When compared to acetal copolymers offered by competitors, Delrin® offers higher tensile strength, stiffness, and creep resistance, and significantly outperforms on impact resistance, allowing for thinner and lighter part design. In addition, Delrin® offers outstanding low- and high-temperature performance, good colorability, and good mating with metal and other polymers.
Delrin® provides dimensional stability in high precision molding and flexibility of design. From auto parts to innovative new medical devices, Delrin® is a premier choice for consumer and industrial solutions.
Delrin® properties of the Delrin® 100 series make it the premier resin of choice in the most demanding applications where the ultimate in toughness combined with high strength, creep and fatigue resistance are required.
Find out about the latest grades of Delrin® acetal resin with properties tailored for emerging market and application needs. Current features include low emission homopolymer grades and medium-high viscosity acetals.
