What the difference between Copolymer Acetal and Homopolymer Acetal in Round rods or sheets and plate

Delrin is the perfect plastic for turning on a lathe lathe. It’s easy to turn, but it requires slower speeds. I use this stuff to make Scottish small pipes chanters. I have bought countless items from Industrial Plastic. Small parts usually ship quickly and everything has been well packed. I have never had an issue with an order.
Between the Delrin and POM-C rods, both materials are very durable and easily machinable, and they have similar physical properties. They appear the same, but in practical use there are a few differences that may 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 applicable properties you may need for your application.
Our Acetal Sheet is definitely our primary material for machining,as it gives an nice finish both on manual and CNC Machines. It has a pretty low moisture absorption making it the usual grade for food contact and where the dimensional stability is critical. Acetal Sheet has the best combination of high mechanical strength, hardness and toughness, giving it superb sliding properties, electrical insulation, and wear resistance.
Acetal Sheet has many applications and is especially of value in the food preparation industry. Because of its low moisture absorption it helped it to achieve Food & Drug Administration approval and its excellent sliding abilities which help with very low friction and hard wearing food safe components.
Acetal Sheet stock, perhaps the best of the engineering plastics chosen within the auto industry because of its long lasting dimensional stability and toughness. It delivers solutions for designers to help them create long lasting and very durable components. Another popular area for Tecaform AH is in moisture applications. This environment suits acetal well because its low moisture absorption results in components that won’t expand or alter dimensions due to contact with water.
