Delrin—What Is It?
Delrin® is a thermoplastic material used in moving parts that require low friction and long wear life. Products made of Delrin® are tough, have high impact strength and high resistance to repeated impact. Additionally, Delrin® has high tensile strength and creep resistance, and exhibits low moisture absorption. Its chemical resistance to hydrocarbons, solvents and neutral chemicals make Delrin® ideal for many industrial applications.
Delrin® – also known as Acetal Homopolymer (POM-H/Ertacetal H®) – parts are easily machined and its strength and high abrasion resistance make it a good replacement for metal if the full strength of metal is not required.
Printing on Delrin
Unique Assembly & Design can provide POM plastic decorative services to companies all over the United States. We will work with you to find a printing solution to your Delrin® product despite its reputation as a difficult material to print on. Our printing processes ensure excellent adhesion.
- Pad printing: Great for fine detail and multicolor registration
- Screen printing: Works well for single, large images on flat or cylindrical parts. This method produces very opaque printed images.
