Acetal copolymer is more resistant against hydrolysis, strong alkalis and thermal-oxidative degradation than the Acetal Homopolymer. Homopolymer however, has higher mechanical strength, stiffness, hardness and creep resistance as well as a lower thermal expansion rate and often it also presents a better wear resistance.
DELRIN AF (Ertacetal H-TF) is an Acetal blended with TFE fluorocarbon Fibres giving low friction and long wear life.
ACETAL, DERLIN and DELRIN AF are available in our online shop ShopforPlastic in Rod, Sheet and Block.
