POM is a white semi-crystalline copolymer, used twice as much by machinists nowadays than polyamide. It has similar mechanical characteristics as polyamide but has the advantage of being more stable in a damp environment and it is also easier to process : it is for this reason that machinists prefer it. It is also available in different colors.

Characteristics :

POM can withstand high mechanical constrains. It is rigid, creep resistant and also resists various stresses without deforming. It is stable. It has a low friction coefficient, which gives it a good resistance to wear (repeated stress on its surface ) and to abrasive wear ( frictions or shocks on its surface). It is resistant to chemical products (hydrocarbons, oils, grease…). It is sensitive to UV’s : for outdoor use it is preferable to use in black.
It can be in contact with foods when in its natural state. It is also a good electrical insulator. For all of these reasons, POM is the material used for mechanical engineering and precision engineering.

Applications :

Gears, shock components, friction components , electrical and electronic industry.
