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. POM homopolymers are used in 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); and consumer items (e.g. toys, garden sprayers, zippers). POM copolymers, on the other hand, are employed in industrial/automative applications (e.g. gears, cams, bushings, clips, lugs, door handles, window, cranks, housings) and food applications (e.g. milk pumps, coffee spigots, food conveyors). Other applications of POM include its use as: engineering plastic; small precision molding component (in measuring/ communication equipment); part in various electronical items (televisions, radios, computers, telephones, etc); and in manufacturing of oil/gas pipes and aerosol container for cosmetics.
- Formaldehyde + acetic anhydride (carbonyl addition reaction).
