Delrin (POM) Injection Molding
Delrin is a high strength material with excellent wear resistance
Injection-molded Delrin (POM) offers high-tensile strength, low-friction and high-wear resistance, creep and warp resistance, and overall durability and toughness. It's a high-performance material for parts that will be in harsh environments or experience heavy wear.
The Main Benefits of Delrin (POM):
