Acetal isn't just for injection molding anymore. At the recent National Plastics Exposition in Chicago, DuPont Engineering Polymers (http://plastics.dupont.com) introduced Delrin® acetal sheet suitable for thermoforming.

Initial applications include housings and trays for use in medical, dental, and biochemical research settings.
