Acetal (Polyoxymethylene or POM) is a tough, machinable thermoplastic with a high modulus of elasticity, high strength, good rigidity, dimensional stability, and resistance to moisture, chemicals and solvents.
It has desirable toughness properties, performing well at extreme temperatures and under fatigue endurance. Its low coefficient of friction (COF) and excellent wear properties, especially in wet or moist environments, make acetal one of the most widely used engineering thermoplastics on the market today.
Acetal plastic is known by brand names including Delrin®, Tecaform® and Sustarin®. Delrin®, provided by Interstate Plastics, is the leading trusted name for acetal homopolymer.
