Polyoxymethylene (POM)

Custom Components Manufactured with Polyoxymethylene (POM) PlasticPOM Plastic Components

Polyoxymethylene is a blend of plastic used in many types of injection molding applications. Since it is a high strength plastic, Polyoxymethylene is often favored for its high impact strength and hardness level, exceptional durability, and high flexural modulus. Other benefits of using Polyoxymethylene products include:

  • Heat and flame resistance
  • Rigidity
  • Wear resistance
  • Dimensional stability
  • Chemical resistance

Like other thermoplastic materials, Polyoxymethylene turns to liquid at its melting point, rather than burning or charring. POM is a low friction material as well, meaning it doesn’t heat up easily when used in high friction applications.

Retlaw Industries uses innovative plastic injection molding practices to manufacture a number of Polyoxymethylene components for a countless number of industries. Since it’s an acetal resin, POM is vulnerable to acid hydrolysis and oxidation.
