Extruded Delrin Shapes combine creep/fatigue resistance, strength.

Press Release Summary:

Manufactured from DuPont Delrin® resin and suited for industrial applications, DELRIN stock shapes are optimized for tensile strength, creep and fatigue resistance, and toughness. Extrusion process produces shapes with minimal stress and maximized dimensional stability, which promote consistent and reliable mechanical parts. Shapes also exhibit minimal moisture adsorption and are resistant to hydrocarbons, solvents, and neutral chemicals.

Ensinger's Delrin® Stock Shapes Offer High Tensile Strength, Creep and Fatigue Resistance and Excellent Toughness

Ensinger’s DELRIN® stock shapes are manufactured from DuPont DELRIN® resin. They possess high tensile strength, creep and fatigue resistance, and excellent toughness. Engineers consistently specify DuPont DELRIN® stock shapes made by Ensinger because of their increased physical properties, which can be as much as 20% higher than other acetals. 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® stock shapes exhibit low moisture adsorption and are chemically resistant to hydrocarbons, solvents, and neutral chemicals.

While these properties are impressive, it is the material’s significantly better fatigue endurance that makes Ensinger DELRIN® much more ideal for most industrial applications than its acetal copolymer counterparts. 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 increasingly popular. 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 DELRIN® shapes include auto safety system components; conveyor parts, such as bushings and bearing housings; fasteners and clips; fuel system components; and home appliance parts.
