POM C Acetal copolymer is rigid and strong with a low coefficient of friction against metals and other plastics. POM C is creep resistant and ideal for parts where dimensional stability is important like plastic gears. POM C does not absorb moisture and is resistant to a wide range of solvents; however resistance to strong acids is poor. Its physical properties remain constant in a variety of environments. Low moisture absorption results in excellent dimensional stability for close-tolerance machined parts. In high moisture or submerged applications, POM C bearings outperform nylon 4 to 1.
POM C Acetal is used extensively in traditional “metals” applications where the combination of strength and toughness offer winning advantages.
