Acetal Products from ENSINGER-HYDE

As an "ELITE" Distributor for ENSINGER-HYDE, Modern Plastics offers DELRIN® (TECAFORM™ AD) acetal homopolymer and TECAFORM™ AH acetal copolymer stock shapes (sheet, rod, tube and film). DELRIN® (TECAFORM™ AD) and TECAFORM™ AH acetal represent a huge advance in engineering plastics technology, consistently measuring lower in stress and higher in quality than competitive materials. DELRIN® (TECAFORM™ AD) and TECAFORM™ AH acetal offer lower stress and better dimensional stability, which means less warping. TECAFORM™ AH exceeds requirements for physical properties, stress and centerline porosity per ASTM D 6100 S-POM0211,LP.
DELRIN® possesses high tensile strength, creep resistance and toughness. It also exhibits low moisture absorption. It is chemically resistant to hydrocarbons, solvents and neutral chemicals. These properties along with its fatigue endurance make Acetal DELRIN® ideal for many industrial applications.

DELRIN®'s overall combination of physical, tribological and environmental properties make it ideal for many industrial wear and mechanical applications. Pump and valve components and parts exposed to a moist or wet environment are especially suited to being manufactured from Acetal DELRIN®. Other common uses include electrical insulator parts, gears, bearings, bushings, rollers, and fittings.
