Delrin is a plastic material specifically engineered to offer high stiffness, low friction, and superior machinability. In CNC machining, Delrin is best suited for projects that require rigid materials, dimensional stability, and high precision. Machined Delrin parts tend to excel in environments with complications such as excess moisture and elevated temperatures.
Ardel Engineering has extensive experience with Delrin and provides durable, high-quality machined Delrin components to clients across a variety of industries and applications.
Benefits of Delrin Machining
Delrin—also known as polyoxymethylene—is a highly stable thermoplastic. It is typically molded or machined to create high-endurance parts and components. The beneficial characteristics of machined Delrin make it ideal for many manufacturing situations.
Some of these benefits include:
- Chemical resistance to solvents/fuels
- High fatigue endurance
- Easy to fabricate with low and consistent internal stress
- Longer service life for finished parts
- Dimensions don't change significantly during machining and use
- Material and final products are highly resistant to wear-and-tear
- Delrin machined parts are naturally ESD safe and dissipate static
- High strength and stiffness
- Can be colored to match the desired aesthetic
- Blends with other components to improve mechanical properties
- Low moisture absorption compared to other engineering plastics makes it well-suited to wet environments
These characteristics make machined Delrin a good option for high-impact applications in a broad range of industrial and mechanical applications.
