alt-intech® POM-C (Acetal) Polyoxymethylene can be used in temperatures up to +100 °C. The high surface strength is only surpassed by a few materials. POM shows good sliding properties and high resistance to wear and tear because of the high strength and smooth surface. There is a very low risk of stress cracks. POM-C (Copolymere) exhibits a high thermal stability and a high resistance to chemicals (high resistance to hydrolysis). Properties: no microporosity high strength high rigidity (to -40 °C) high thermal stability low water absorption high dimension stability good electrical insulating properties very good sliding properties high resistance to solvents very high resistance to stress cracks not resistant to high-concentrated acids difficult to glue and paint Applications: Bearings, fittings, gear wheels, parts for pumps, screws, bobbins, parts for the textile industry, medium for coating lines.
