PolyOxyMethylene (POM)

PolyOxyMethylene (POM) Product Description

POM, also known as Delrin, is an engineering thermoplastic superhero with superpowers you’ll love:

  • Strength and Rigidity: Think iron skeleton of the plastic world. POM can handle demanding tasks and stay in shape even at temperatures up to 100°C.
  • Machinist’s Dream: Imagine sculpting with butter (but way stronger). POM’s easy machinability lets you craft intricate parts with precise detail.
  • Slide Like Silk: POM’s low friction makes it the ultimate glidin’ champion, perfect for gears, bearings, and any parts that need to move smoothly. ‍♀️
  • Tough Cookie: Wear and tear? POM shrugs it off. Its high resistance to abrasion and chemicals makes it ideal for long-lasting, durable applications. ️

But that’s not all! POM is also:

  • A water-hater: Low moisture absorption means dimensional stability, no warping or shrinking on your watch.
  • Chemically cool: From strong acids to harsh cleaning agents, POM stays composed.

From gears and bearings to medical devices and even eyeglass frames, POM’s versatility shines in countless applications.

So, next time your project needs a material with superpowers, remember POM – the engineering wonder plastic!
