data sheet

POM or polyester is an engineering superplastic with low friction coefficient and high wear resistance. In fact, POM was developed to fill the gap between engineering polymers and metals. POM, with the scientific name Polyoxymethylene, is the result of the polymerization of Formaldehyde monomer, and for this reason, it is also known as Polyformaldehyde. The most important properties of this engineering thermoplastic include the following:

  • High hardness and rigidity
  • Excellent flexibility
  • Unparalleled chemical resistance
  • Excellent surface and friction properties
  • Dimensional stability
  • Very little water absorption
  • Very little creep
