Market Synopsis

Polyoxymethylene (POM), also known as acetal or polyacetal, is a high-performance engineering plastic widely used in various industries. It is a thermoplastic polymer known for its excellent mechanical properties, including high stiffness, low friction, good dimensional stability, and resistance to wear and chemicals. POM is characterized by its high strength and resistance to moisture absorption, making it suitable for applications requiring durability, precision, and reliability.

Polyoxymethylene finds extensive application in numerous industries. It is commonly used in automotive components, such as gears, fuel system components, and door handles, due to its exceptional mechanical strength and resistance to fuels and oils. POM is also widely employed in the electrical and electronics industries for connectors, switches, and insulators. Additionally, its low friction properties make it suitable for applications like bearings, conveyor belts, and gears in industrial machinery. The excellent dimensional stability of POM makes it a preferred choice for precision parts in the medical and consumer goods sectors.
