POM-C - polyacetal copolymer

Compare material
Other material names POM-C: Polyacetal, Polyoxymethylene, Polyformaldehyde
Material group: 

POM-C is a unique balance of physical properties not available in most other thermoplastics. This copolymer acetal is an engineering plastic made for wide-ranging universal applications in many different industries. The key performance characteristics of unmodified POM-C include high mechanical strength and rigidity, excellent wear, low moisture absorption and excellent dimensional stability. Unfilled POM-C copolymer offers high crystallinity and a good degree of toughness (even in the lower temperature range), combined with good chemical resistance.
