What is the difference between the Acetron® GP and DuPont Delrin®?

Acetron® GP is a copolymer acetal. This general-purpose acetal is the only porosity-free acetal product available. This allows it to provide the performance and machinability of acetal without the center core porosity.

DuPont Delrin® is a homopolymer acetal. It has slightly better mechanical properties than the Acetron® GP acetal but may contain a low-density center, especially in larger cross sections.
