Acetal C (POM C) and Delrin (POM H) are available in standard stock shapes for machining and is extruded in sheet, rod and tube. Acetal is a semi-crystalline thermoplastic with high mechanical strength and rigidity.
Acetal polymers retain excellent mechanical properties including good sliding characteristics and excellent wear resistance, as well as low moisture absorption. The good dimensional stability and particularly good fatigue strength, as well as excellent machining ability, makes acetal polymers a highly versatile engineering material, even for complex components.
Delrin is a semi-crystalline, thermoplastic with product characteristics including excellent dimensional stability, low moisture absorption and high wear resistance. This product offers slightly higher tensile and impact strength in comparison to acetal rod.
With large stocks available across a range of dimensions and thicknesses, we are confident that we can provide you with the acetal or Delrin sheet, rod or tube you need for your specific project. Have a browse through our acetal range available to buy online.

Online we offer a range of products available in natural, black, blue and a range of specialist colours. All of our products in our acetal copolymer or homopolymer range can also be cut to size or machined to your specific requirements. If you are looking for a more bespoke acetal product, please get in touch with our friendly sales team who will be happy to help.
What applications can acetal be used for? Acetal is an extremely versatile material available in a range of grades that are suited to conducting charge, dissipating charge as well as applications where additional wear resistance is required or specialist grades certified for food contact. The acetal rod and sheet products we have on offer are perfect for materials that can be used in a range of industrial and commercial applications. Some of the most popular applications we manufacture parts for include:
If you require improved performance, dimensional consistency and products machined to tight tolerances please send us a spec of your requirement. The acetal products we supply are manufactured from high-quality virgin polymer and comply with the latest industry standards. Components can be produced for contact with food and we ensure our products are compliant with FDA and EU regulations.
We offer a range of great services to complement our acetal rod and sheet products. These services include CNC machining, drilling, sawing and routing to name a few. We also have a team of experts who can offer design advice and support to help you get the most from your product. Our services include:
Cut to Size
CNC Machining (Volume and Small Batch)
Centreless Precision Grinding
