Polyoxymethylene, commonly called Acetalic Resin, is a crystalline polymer obtained by formaldehyde polymerization but has a fast and very wide diffusion for its excellent mechanical properties, dimensional stability and good workability.
- High fatigue resistance.
- Low coefficient of friction.
- Great dimensional stability.
- High compressive strength and impact resistance even at low temperatures.
- High chemical resistance to solvents, strong fuels and alkalis.
- Excellent machine toolability
- Suitable for food contact.
- Good dielectric and insulating properties.
- Not permeable to gases, no microporosity
- Compared to the PA6, it has a lower abrasion resistance, especially in dirty and dusty environments
- Low resistance to concentrated acids
- Mechanics: Large-scale employing mechanical parts such as bearings, low module gears, sliding wheels, guides, and dimensionally stable precision parts.
- Food: physiologically inert, is used in contact with food
- Electrics: Being non-hygroscopic, this material is commonly used for electrical uses as an insulator.
- Chemistry: It is resistant to alkali and organic compounds; Thanks to good chemical resistance it is used for bodies of pumps, flanges, details and chemical plants.
