Performance for the patient—Delrin® delivers for medical and healthcare applications.

Formulated with a deep understanding of the technical, processing, and regulatory challenges unique to healthcare environments, Delrin® can be trusted to help take your medical products from design to market.

A Proven Track Record

Delrin® is a material of choice for medical applications because of its ability to provide high-performance impact toughness, chemical resistance, low wear and friction, spring recovery, and creep-resistance.

High Performance, Sustainable Medical-Grade Resins:

  • Minimize the risk of medical device malfunction through superior friction reduction, and mechanical properties that extend the service life
  • High strength and ease of processing makes thin-wall designs possible, significantly reducing material consumption and increasing productivity
  • A portfolio of “Special Control” (SC) and “Premium Control” (PC) grades, which are differentiated by a greater degree of testing, manufacturing control, and regulatory support
  • Renewable Attributed versions are produced from certified sustainable sources that help manufacturers reduce the carbon footprint (GWP) of products and achieve sustainability goals
