Engineers consistently specify DuPont Delrin stock shapes extruded by Ensinger because of their increased physical properties which can be as much as 20% higher than other acetals. Manufactured from DuPont Delrin resin, Ensinger uses a proprietary extrusion process that produces shapes with lower stress and better dimensional stability that leads to consistent and reliable mechanical parts. Delrin is a popular choice for manufactured plastic gears.

As automotive engineers look to reduce weight, improve energy efficiency and fuel economy, as well as lower noise output, Delrin has become an increasingly popular choice. Its higher strength characteristics and better fatigue endurance make it an excellent choice to replace metal gears while maintaining or improving long-term performance. Other popular applications for Ensinger’s DuPont Delrin shapes include auto safety system components; conveyor parts, such as bushings and bearing housings; fasteners and clips; fuel system components; home, and home appliance parts.
