Polyoxymethylene Production Cost Reports

Reports Available in Subscriptions

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.

Intratec offers professional, easy-to-understand reports examining Polyoxymethylene production. Each study describes an industrial plant, including main process units and site infrastructure, and presents an independent analysis of capital and operating costs. All reports are based on the most recent economic data available (Q2 2019).

You can find below reports focused on Polyoxymethylene production processes available in report subscriptions offered by Intratec.

Polyoxymethylene Production Process - Cost Analysis | POM E11A

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 USA, 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.

Polyoxymethylene from Methanol and Acetic Anhydride - Cost Analysis | POM E21A

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.
