Polyacetal, also known as acetal or polyoxymethylene (POM), is a formaldehyde-based, semi-crystalline engineering thermoplastic containing the functional group of a carbon bonded to two -OR groups. Other names of POM are Polyformaldehyde, Polymethylene glycol, Polyoxymethylene glycol. It is 100% recyclable.
are widely used in the production of precision parts for applications demanding good dimensional stability and sliding properties. Some of them include:
- Electrical & electronic
- Drug Delivery
The polymer serves as an alternative to metals thanks to its low friction & wear characteristics and its excellent balance of mechanical and chemical properties.
