A few of our most prominent concerns are "Is this material UV stable?", or "The length of time will this last in direct sunlight?", or some comparable themed question. These are wonderful inquiries. Just consider the 'cheap' yard furnishings you acquired last season, yep, it is faded and splitting or broken. Why is that?The fast
answer is the material had either no UV (Ultra Violet Light) stabilizer or hardly any - or it was just the incorrect plastic for the part. Most plastic materials are not UV secure to start with, besides Acrylic which is undetectable to UV. All other products require a something (an additive) to give it the security it may require from the sunlight. Lots of plastic products, if offered the proper UV immune additives, can be used in straight sunshine for 10 - 15 years, or extra, giving exceptional performance in severe environments.Additionally, many products will work well if they are repainted to cover the plastic surface. Several spray paints, particularly Polymer paints, last several years in the sunlight. Please consult us, as some material do decline paints or coatings.Take time to evaluate your demands, and also the buildings of the plastic you
mean to use. The appropriate material will give the most effective performance.
This is one of our most common questions asked by our new and long term clients, as well as is a little bit difficult to answer. All Delrin is Acetal (POM), however not all Acetal is Delrin. (All Fords are autos, not all vehicles are Fords)
Acetal is the generic name for the material, and also not all Acetal is Delrin. Several makers create Acetal material, including: Celanese, BASF, Ticona, Sabic as well as lots of more.The homo-polymer Acetal material generated by Dupont as well as is called Delrin. The common Acetal covers both the homo-polymer as well as the co-polymer qualities of material. Both products satisfy the fundamental provisions of the ASTM-D-4181 requirements. Homo-polymer is provided under POM 111, and Co-polymer is POM 211. per square inch -degrees F 257 220
