Acetal (Polyoxymethylene, POM)

Acetal (Polyoxymethylene, POM)

Acetal is a certainly very high tensile strength plastic with significant creep resistant properties that bridge the material properties gap between most plastics and metals. Moreover, it is also good for a high resistance to heat, abrasion, water, and chemical compounds. Additionally, Acetal has a particularly low coefficient of friction, which combined certainely with its other characteristics makes it very useful for applications that utilize gears.

One short phrase to describe the major benefits of Acetal relative to also other plastics and materials would be:

  • Low Friction


Additionally, We offer and search POM in form of ground for injection and extrusion applications.
