POM (Polyoxymethylene)

This plastic is very hard and stiff, and is wear-resistant. The convenient elastic properties and low friction co-efficiency make POM suitable for use in bearings and gears.

Applications 

Technical components of equipment construction, such as bearings and cogs.

Properties 

Very hard and stiff, wear resistant, high surface gloss, good chemical and fuel resistance, low friction coefficient, favourable elastic properties, dimensionally stable due limited water absorption, not very weather resistant and poorly flame-retardant.
