Acetal

New Technology Plastics distributes a wide selection of Acetals materials in sheet, rod, and tube. Acetal POM material, commonly called acetal (chemically known as Polyoxymethylene. POM plastic is a semi crystalline thermoplastic with high mechanical strength and rigidity. Acetal polymer has good sliding characteristics and excellent wear resistance, as well as low moisture absorption. The good dimensional stability and particularly good fatigue strength, as well as excellent machining ability, makes POM polymer a highly versatile engineering material, even for complex components.

A distinction is made between acetal homopolymers (POM-H) and acetal copolymers (POM-C) regarding their properties. Due to its higher crystallinity, the properties of POM H include a slightly higher density, hardness, and strength. POM C material, however, has higher chemical resistance and a lower melting point than POM H.
