Delrin is a thermoplastic polyoxymethylene (POM) resin made by the chemical company DuPont. It is well known for its strength, stiffness, and low friction. It is often used as a metal replacement in applications requiring strength and low friction such as gears and bearings. It also has good chemical resistance and is often used for parts exposed to harsh chemicals including acids. Due to its low water absorption, it can be used in outdoor settings and does not corrode or weaken from exposure to water. It is also temperature-resistant and can withstand temperatures from -40 to 180 degrees celsius. Common uses of Delrin include gears and bearing components, automotive parts, housings and fixtures, and parts exposed to harsh chemicals.
