Ensinger's Delrin® Polymer Outperforms Standard Copolymer Shapes

Press release date: June 18, 2013

Engineers consistently specify DuPont™ Delrin® stock shapes extruded by Ensinger because of their increased physical properties which can be as much as 20% higher than other acetals. Manufactured from DuPont™ Delrin® resin, Ensinger uses a proprietary extrusion process that produces shapes with lower stress and better dimensional stability that leads to consistent and reliable mechanical parts. Delrin® is a popular choice for manufactured plastic gears. As automotive engineers look to reduce weight, improve energy efficiency and fuel economy, as well as lower noise output, Delrin® has become an increasingly popular choice. Its higher strength characteristics and better fatigue endurance make it an excellent choice to replace metal gears while maintaining or improving long-term performance. Other popular applications for Ensinger’s DuPont™ Delrin® shapes include auto safety system components; conveyor parts, such as bushings and bearing housings; fasteners and clips; fuel system components; home, and home appliance parts.
