What is Polyoxymethylene (POM)?

Polyoxymethylene is a thermoplastic material used in many types of injection molding applications. POM is an acetal resin and is vulnerable to acid hydrolysis and oxidation. It is a high-strength plastic with high impact strength and hardness levels, exceptional durability, and high flexural modulus.

Molding Benefits of Polyoxymethylene

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. Other benefits of using Polyoxymethylene products include:

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