What is the difference between Delrin and Delrin AF?

Delrin® AF Blend retains approximately 90% of the mechanical strength and rigidity of Delrin®, but with improved bearing and sliding properties, and almost no ‘slip-stick’ characteristics. Other formulations available are Delrin® 100AF containing 20% Teflon fibers and provides even lower frictional properties.
