POM is especially used in fine mechanics demanding low maintenance functionality, high strenght, elasticity and dimensional stability. POM is used where a good combination of hardness, stiffness, toughness and high fatigue strenght is needed.
With POM the tendency of cold flow is considerably reduced.
POM is distinguished by fine friction and wear resistance.
The temperature range is wide and POM is resistant to many chemicals.
Should not be used in connection with strong mineral acids and oxidising chemicals or in applications exposed to UV-radiation.
