Product Description

Polyoxymethylene (POM), known as acetal, is a very crystalline thermoplastic with good mechanical, thermal, and chemical resistance properties that make it ideal for precision parts that need strong stiffness, low friction, and excellent dimensional stability POM is the result of the reaction of formaldehyde with formaldehyde in which anionic polymerization is involved which helps to make a stable and strong polymer chain.

POM is highly useful for making precision parts thanks to its strength and corrosion resistance to wear and solvents, it is therefore invaluable in different industries. Its main advantages are that it is strong, it can withstand low temperatures and it is also fatigue resistant, which makes it very effective in gears, fasteners, bearings, and automotive parts where performance is crucial.

Furthermore, POM is used in food contact applications and as a material for medical devices due to its alignment with regulatory requirements on purity and safety. Additionally, the material's machineability, as well as its absence of moisture absorption, make it ideal for the design of the parts with high accuracy and durability. Such quality guarantees the use of POM in modern manufacturing processes and engineering applications.
