Acetone and delrin

Would a white delrin component be harmed in any way if it was submerged in a bath of acetone for say....
12 hours?

There's one way to find out. The answer's in the empirical data.

i think it melts, but you will have to try it and find out, i know for a fact brake fluid and battery acid both melt delrin, and shoes.

Well I machined this piece of delrin, I'm not interested in trial and error for this piece!

I don't think it should suffer any damage. Here's the chemical resistance chart for Delrin:

Remember to eat carefully around it. While Delrin is mayonaise resistant, fruit juice will destroy it.
