What is POM (Polyoxymethylene)?
POM is an abbreviation for Polyoxymethylene also known as acetal, polyacetal and polyformaldehyde, is an engineering thermoplastic used in precision parts requiring high stiffness, low friction, and excellent dimensional stability. As with many other synthetic polymers, it is produced by different chemical firms with slightly different formulas and sold variously by such names as Delrin, Celcon, Ramtal, Duracon, Kepital and Hostaform. POM is characterized by its high strength, hardness and rigidity to −40 °C. POM is intrinsically opaque white, due to its high crystalline composition, but it is available in all colors. POM resin has a density of 1.410–1.420 g/cm3.
UNINKO modified POM compounds series includes glass/mineral/carbon/stainless steel fiber reinforced grade, anti-static grade, ESD protection grade, electric conductive grade, wear resistant grade, UV resistant grade, EMI shielding grade, etc broad range, with excellent performances, and widely used in the automotive and consumer electronics, mechanical engineering, sports equipments, home appliances and other industries, etc. Typical applications for injection-molded POM include high-performance engineering components such as small gear wheels, ball bearings, ski bindings, fasteners, knife handles, and lock systems.
