Polyoxymethylene (Polyacetal) grades):
POM C (Acetal copolymer, natural, black, various)
The copolymer grade is the ideal combination of strength, stiffness and wear resistance. It absorbs very little moisture, is easily machinable and is genuinely porosity-free, making it the preferred grade for food contact and medical applications. The product exhibits an elevated resistance to hydrolysis, strong alkalis and thermal-oxidative degradation when compared to acetal homopolymer.
POM CPE (Acetal copolymer + PE) (blue)
Self-lubrication is achieved by the incorporation of ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene to the copolymer grade, improving sliding, dry-running and abrasion resistance properties. The material also has extremely low moisture absorption, helping to improve component dimensional stability.
POM C GF (Acetal copolymer + 30% glass ﬁbre) (white, black)
This copolymer grade is reinforced with glass ﬁbre to achieve greater mechanical strength, rigidity and dimensional stability. The material also exhibits higher heat resistant properties.
POM H Acetal Homopolymer (Delrin®) (white, black)
The homopolymer grade exhibits slightly higher mechanical properties, illustrated in the hardness, rigidity and creep resistance. The material also demonstrates elevated wear resistance and has a lower thermal expansion rate than acetal copolymer.
POM HT Acetal Homopolymer + PTFE (Delrin®) (brown)
The inclusion of Teﬂon® ﬁbres uniformly dispersed in the compound improves the products frictional and sliding capabilities, improving wear and stick/slip behaviour.
