What is POM?
Polyoxymethylenes, also known as POMs,
are notable for their high degree of crystallinity, which gives them:
high strength, stiffness and hardness, good chemical and environmental
resistance and low moisture absorption.
POM, classified as acetal copolymer, is very versatile and, as a result, is used
in a wide array of applications across many industries. Moreover, POM may be processed
by injection molding, extrusion, compression molding, rotational casting or blow
POM unfilled polymer is widely used in many standard applications and to produce
rod stock or slab stock, which can be easily machined, for example for prototyping.
In some circumstances, the polymer is modified with glass fibers, minerals, conductive
fillers, lubricants, pigments and many other additives.
