Polyoxymethylene (POM)


Polyoxymethylene (POM, polyacetal, polyformaldehyde, acetal) is a high molecular weight thermoplastic. It is used as a technical plastic, especially for precision parts, because of its high rigidity, low coefficient of friction, excellent dimensional stability and thermal stability. The inherent color of the POM is opaque white, but the material is covered in all colors.

Properties of POM

  • High strength
  • High hardness
  • High rigidity
  • High abrasion resistance
  • Low coefficients of friction
  • High heat resistance
  • Low water absorption

Applications of POM

Gears, sliding and guide elements, housing parts, spring elements, chains, screws, nuts, pump parts, valve bodies, insulators, bobbins, connectors, joint shells, model trains, bogies, handle bars, locks, handles, hinges, curtain rolls, aerosol cans, vehicle tanks, gas ampoules, zippers.
