Polyoxymethylene (POM) is characterized by high stiffness, wear resistance and dimensional stability. Precisely those components that require high dimensional accuracy and demanding tolerances are the ones that benefit the most from the properties of this material.
On the other hand, POM offers very good resilience properties (e.g. in springs and press fits) as well as easy processing, excellent surface finish, good chemical resistance and also stands out for its excellent tribological behavior (response to sliding and friction).
This thermoplastic is commonly used in products for sectors such as automotive, electrical and electronics, as well as for the manufacture of components for machinery, industrial equipment and a wide variety of consumer goods.
