Polyacetal POM

Our POM products are characterized by a high mechanical strength, good dimensional stability and outstanding machinability (short chips facilitate processing on CNC machines).

These criteria have qualified POM as a technical polymer that can often be used instead of metals, resulting not only in technical improvements but also enabling considerable cost reductions.

The outstanding properties of semi-finished products made from POM are:

  • high strength
  • good toughness, even at low temperatures
  • good elasticity
  • good dimensional stability
  • low water absorption
  • good machinability
  • good sliding friction properties
  • good chemical resistance (particularly against strongly basic media)
  • good recyclability
