The general features of the homopolymer Acetal resin are similar to those of the copolymer POM-C. However, the service temperature (under load) is slightly higher but the resistance to hydrolysisis and strong alkalis is slightly lower. POM-H is more commonly known as Delrin®. POM-H has a slightly higher mechanical strength than the POM-C but both are easy to machine and offer excellent dimensional stability.
It can be precision machined for intricate components with tight tolerances and is one of the most commonly used engineering plastics for mechanical applications such as:
