POM

GEHR POM-C® (Acetal)

Polyoxymethylene can be used in temperatures up to +100 °C. The high surface strength is only surpassed by a few materials.
POM shows good sliding properties and high resistance to wear and tear because of the high strength and smooth surface. There is a very low risk of stress cracks. POM-C (Copolymere) exhibits a high thermal stability and a high resistance to chemicals (high resistance to hydrolysis).

Properties:

  • no microporosity
  • high strength
  • high rigidity (to -40 °C)
  • high thermal stability
  • low water absorption
  • high dimension stability
  • good electrical insulating properties
  • very good sliding properties
  • high resistance to solvents
  • very high resistance to stress cracks
  • not resistant to high-concentrated acids
  • difficult to glue and paint

Applications:

Bearings, fittings, gear wheels, parts for pumps, screws, bobbins, parts for the textile industry, medium for coating lines.
