General material information without obligation







POM (1,42 g/cm³)  is a relative heavy, partially crystalline technical thermoplastic with structure -(CH2-O-)n for homopolymers. POM features in the range of not reinforced thermoplastics with very high strength and stiffness (also at long-term stress and at low temperatures) beside high dimensionally stability and excellent fatigue strength. Wear resistance is nearly as well as at PA. POM will preferred selected for technical applications like snap-in joints, slide bearings (also with Silicon- or PTFE-additives), rolls and gear tooth components. Natural colour is whitely-opaque. POM will be processed at 180-190 °C, inflame itself at 375 °C and burns at 323 °C with a light bluely flame with penetrative Formaldehyde smell.
