Ensinger's Delrin® Polymer Outperforms Standard Copolymer Shapes

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...

FDA Compliant Blue Components Allow Easier Optical Inspection During Food Processing

Ensinger's TECAFORM® FG Blue was designed and developed so that food equipment components machined from this material will be more visible than the same parts made from standard natural colored materials. Blue is the only color that does not widely occur naturally in the food chain. Therefore, should components break or wear during operations, small pieces will be more likely to be picked up...

Blue Colored Acetal targets food industry applications.

Since blue does not widely occur naturally in food chain, TECAFORM® FG Blue was designed so that food equipment components machined from this material will be picked up by optical inspection systems if part breaks during operation. Manufactured from FDA, USDA, and 3A Dairy compliant resin, material is resistant to hot water and most cleaning chemicals. It is used for bushings, rollers, and...

Engineering Plastic can be sensed by metal detectors.

SUSTARIN® C MDT is acetal with additives that allow it to be traced by standard metal detectors and removed before causing food contamination. Mechanical, thermal, and chemical resistance properties are same as standard acetal and its dimensional stability is suitable for close tolerance parts on machinery. Available in rods with Â-¼-8 in. dia and sheets from 3/8-4 in. thick,...
