On Delrin™

Just like the flux capacitor made time travel possible; delrin makes the Roost possible. The majority of Roost components are cut by laser from sheets delrin plastic. This process affords us the luxury to manufacture, assemble, and ship your Roost right here in sunny Denver, Colorado. It's remarkable really. We are living in the future friends and we don't even need the Libyan's plutonium.

Here are some additional delrin specs I lifted from a PDF that was far LESS dry than the Polyoxymethylene wiki page (YIKES). Enjoy!
