PolyAcetal / PolyOxyMethylene


POM is a semi-crystalline thermoplastic and demonstrates good sliding properties and wear resistance as well as low moisture absorption.

Its good dimensional stability and strength in addition to an outstanding machinability make POM a versatile engineering material with many applications. There are homopolymers (POM-H) and copolymers (POM-C).

POM Properties
  • High strength, rigidity, and hardness
  • Good impact resistance even at low temperatures
  • Low moisture absorption
  • High creep strength and dimensional stability
  • Hydrolysis resistance (up to ~60°C)
  • Good resistance against organic solvents
  • Good dimensional stability
  • Wear-resistance (high abrasion resistance)
  • Very good material resilience
  • EU/10/2011, FDA and BGA certification
