Polyethylene oxide, also known as polyformaldehyde or polyoxymethylene (POM) or acetal, is a thermoplastic polymer widely used in a variety of industrial and commercial application

Properties and features

POM offers excellent mechanical strength, including high resistance to wear, abrasion and fatigue, making it ideal for parts requiring high durability, such as gears, bearings, etc.

It generally maintains its dimensions and shape even under variable temperature and humidity conditions, making it a reliable material for applications requiring dimensional accuracy.

POM has a low coefficient of friction, making it suitable for applications where smooth movement is required, such as transmission system components.

It is resistant to many chemicals, making it suitable for use in environments where it is exposed to corrosive substances.

POM is easy to machine, mould and shape, enabling the efficient manufacture of complex parts to close tolerances
