POM
Polyacetal Resin
Polyoxymethylene (a.k.a. POM, Polyacetal Resin, Polyformaldehyde) is a thermoplastic polymer fiber. For its crystalline packing, consisting of organized stacking chains, POM has a high strength, stability, stiffness and hardness, as well as low friction. These characteristics combined with resistance to chemicals and excellent dimensional stability make the polymer often a substitute for metal and it is widely used in the manufacturing of high-performance engineering materials and electronics.
The uses and applications of Polyoxymethylene may vary according to its specification. The main forms of Polyoxymethylene are 25-100% (percentage of homopolymer POM compared to copolymer POM).

Updated Reports Examining Polyoxymethylene Manufacturing Costs

Intratec offers professional, easy-to-understand Commodity Cost of Production reports analyzing the costs of Polyoxymethylene manufacturing processes. Each report describes an industrial plant based on a specific Polyoxymethylene process. The report also presents an independent analysis of the costs of Polyoxymethylene production, encompassing plant capital costs (capex) and plant operating costs (opex). All reports are based on the most recent economic data available (Q1 2024).

Polyoxymethylene from Formaldehyde and Acetic Anhydride

In this report, it is assessed the production of Polyoxymethylene (POM), also called Polyacetal Resin. The economic analysis concerns Polyoxymethylene production from acetic anhydride and formaldehyde in the United States, assuming a process similar to the one owned by Dupont. Formaldehyde is initially concentrated and then polymerized in an inert cyclohexane medium. To enhance thermal stability, hydroxyl end groups are reacted with acetic anhydride.

Details: 110 kta United States-based plant   |   Q1 2024   |   107 pages   From $1,999 USD

The cost analyses presented in the report POM E11A target a 110 kta (kilometric tons per annum) United States-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.

Polyoxymethylene Production from Methanol and Acetic Anhydride

This report approaches the production of Polyoxymethylene (POM) from methanol and acetic anhydride in the United States. Initially, methanol undergoes partial oxidation yielding formaldehyde over a silver catalyst. Formaldehyde is then polymerized to POM in an inert cyclohexane medium. To enhance thermal stability, hydroxyl end groups are reacted with acetic anhydride.

Details: 85 kta United States-based plant   |   Q1 2024   |   107 pages   From $1,199 USD

The cost analyses presented in the report POM E21A target a 85 kta (kilometric tons per annum) United States-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.

About Polyoxymethylene. Polyoxymethylene (a.k.a. POM, Polyacetal Resin, Polyformaldehyde) is a thermoplastic polymer fiber. For its crystalline packing, consisting of organized stacking chains, POM has a high strength, stability, stiffness and hardness, as well as low friction. These characteristics combined with resistance to chemicals and excellent dimensional stability make the polymer often a substitute for metal and it is widely used in the manufacturing of high-performance engineering materials and electronics.

Polyoxymethylene Uses. The uses and applications of Polyoxymethylene may vary according to its specification. The main forms of Polyoxymethylene are 25-100% (percentage of homopolymer POM compared to copolymer POM).

Intratec Methodology. Intratec distilled its expertise, gained from more than a decade of supporting companies worldwide in the analysis of commodities markets and process economics, and developed a consistent report development methodology.

The methodology ensures a holistic, coherent, and consistent techno-economic evaluation, guiding the development of a report that allows readers to fully understand a specific process technology for the production of a commodity. In addition to being based on a common methodology, all Intratec reports that approach industrial processes have a common structure, i.e., indexes, tables and charts share similar standards. This ensures that Intratec’s readers know upfront what they will get and, more than that, will be able to compare technologies addressed in different reports.

Our methodology is continuously tested and proven by the many corporations involved with the commodities sector, R&D centers, EPC companies, financial institutions and government agencies that rely on our reports.
