POM Pellets

    Acetal resins are semi-crystalline, thermoplastic polymers made by the polymerization of formaldehyde, and are also commonly referred to as polyoxymethylene (POM). They have gained widespread recognition for reliability in many thousands of engineering components all over the world. POM has been used in the automotive, appliance, construction, hardware, electronics, and consumer goods industries, among others. POM is noted for: • High mechanical strength and rigidity • Excellent dimensional stability • Natural lubricity • Fatigue endurance • High resistance to repeated impacts • Excellent resistance to moisture, gasolines, solvents and many other neutral chemicals • Toughness at low temperature (down to –50°C [–58°F]) • Wide useful temperature range (in air: –50 to 90°C [–58 to 194°F], with intermittent use up to 120°C [248°F]). • Good electrical insulating characteristics • Ease of fabrication Delrin® acetal resins are available in a variety of compositions to meet different end-use and processing requirements.
