POM (Polyoxymethylene) is a versatile engineering semi-crystalline plastic. Its main properties are:
  • high strength and rigidity
  • good sliding properties
  • high resistance to wear
  • low water absorption
  • good dimensional stability
  • good fatigue strength

POM is also easy to machine: thanks to this quality it can be used in a wide range of applications such as gear wheels, parts for the textile industry, bearings and many others.

There are two types of POM: POM C (copolymer) and POM H (homopolymer), both natural and filled (e.g., glass fiber, PTFE and other lubricants).

POM is available in compliance with the European Regulation EC 10/2011 and amendments and in accordance with FDA.
