Product Summary of Polyoxymethylene Acetal Copolymer & Homopolymer (POM)
This highly crystalline engineering thermoplastic with a good balance of physical, chemical and electrical properties, was first discovered in the 1920s. However, it took around 30 more years before a commercially viable product was first patented. Both the acetal copolymer and homopolymer are easily machined into a variety of components which include gears, bearings, wheels, guitar picks, etc.
Characteristics of Polyoxymethylene Acetal Copolymer & Homopolymer (POM) include:
- Chemically resistant
- Very low water absorption
- Resistant to hydrolysis by base
- Suitable for contact with food
