Electric Car Door Mechanisms

There have been huge advancements in the automotive sector in recent years, with sophisticated car designs, extensive ergonomic improvements and, of course, growth in the electric car sector. Polymers in general – and specifically Delrin® homopolymer acetal – are integral to these developments in order to keep automotive products safe, light and cost-effective.

Mechanical strength and low wear and friction are just two of the properties of Delrin® that make it the ideal polymer choice for the mechanisms that open your electric / remote controlled door.

Compared to acetal copolymer, Delrin® acetal homopolymer offers higher tensile strength, stiffness, creep and fatigue resistance, and significantly higher impact resistance. The extra mechanical properties of Delrin® allow for parts to be made thinner and smaller, whilst delivering the same performance of a thicker, less compact copolymer acetal moulding.

Spotlight on Delrin®:

  • High mechanical strength and ductility
  • Low wear and friction
  • Low noise
  • Light weight vs metal
  • Automotive approvals
