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.
Chemical Formula. (CH2O)n
Commercial Grades. 25-100% (percentage of homopolymer pom compared to copolymer pom)
Uses. It is presented below some applications for POM homopolymers and copolymers: * Homopolymer: automotive applications (e.g. fuel-system and seat-belt components, steering columns, window-support brackets); industrial applications (e.g. couplings, pump impellers, conveyor plates, gears); consumer items (e.g. toys, garden sprayers, zippers) * Copolymer: industrial and automative applications (e.g. gears, cams, bushings, clips, lugs, door handles, window, cranks, housings); food applications (e.g. milk pumps, coffee spigots, food conveyors) * Other applications: engineering plastic, small precision molding component (in measuring/ communication equipment), part in various electronical items (televisions, radios, computers, telephones, etc), manufacturing of oil/gas pipes and aerosol container for cosmetics.
- Formaldehyde + acetic anhydride (carbonyl addition reaction).
