Why choose Delrin AF?

  • Extremely low friction and wear
  • Chemical resistance
  • Good dimensional stability
  • Natural lubricity
  • Outstanding fatigue endurance
  • Wide end-use temperature range
  • Good electrical insulating characteristics

What are some common Delrin AF applications?

  • Mechanical: gears, bearings, pump impellers
  • Electrical: electrical switch components, electromechanical counter frames
  • Chemical: pumps and beverage valves, household water softeners, garden chemical sprayers
  • Environmental: marine fittings, fuel senders/modules, heater blowers

Delrin AF is a highly versatile plastic material with metal-like properties. Thanks to its chemical resistance, natural lubricity, and wide end-use temperature range, Delrin AF is well suited for projects in a wide variety of industries and operating environments. It is especially useful for components that require lubrication but must function without grease or oil.
