A Guide to Delrin CNC Machined Parts: Properties, Applications and Design Considerations

What is Delrin®? Black Delrin Machined Parts - R&D

Delrin is a brand name for an Acetal homopolymer made solely by DuPont™. Together with Acetal copolymers, Delrin is an engineering plastic known for being amongst the strongest and stiffest of all thermoplastics.

Main Attributes of Delrin®:

  • Dimensional stability before, during and after machining
  • Low moisture absorption
  • Good chemical resistance to fuels and solvents
  • Low friction and high wear resistance
  • Wide operating temperature range (-40°C to 120°C)
  • Good compressive strength
  • Good shock resistance
  • Easy to machine

Delrin in comparison to Acetal Copolymers:

  • Stiffer
  • Higher flexural modulus at room temperature
  • Higher impact strengths at room temperatures and low temperatures
  • Tensile strength is approximately 10-15% higher than comparable copolymers
  • Slightly higher continuous use temperature than copolymer (95°C vs. 90°C)
  • Lower thermal expansion rate
  • Better wear resistance
