Stake Material

You should not rule out Delrin plastic as a steak material. It will not
crack like wood under impact and has a little more of a forgiving nature.
It will not dent up the metal quite as easily if you use a steak and hammer
both of this material. It has excellent load bearing qualities in both
tension and compression. It has a room temp. tensile strength of 10,000 psi
at 16% elongation.It has a low fricyion high wear resistance rato and
offers ease of fabrication. It is not UV stabilized though so do not take
it to the beach with you on vacation. Call United Plastics Corp. for more
