POM-H - polyacetal homopolymer

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

POM-H is a homopolymer acetal.This homopolymer acetal has exceptional sliding characteristics and good wear resistance properties. In comparison to POM-C, POM-H has a slightly higher density, hardness and strength due to its higher crystallinity. In addition, POM-H has good electrical insulating properties, as well as exceptional machining characteristics, making POM-H one of the most versatile engineering materials available today.
