POM – Acetal

Acetal (polyoxymethylene or POM) is a high strength, low friction engineering plastic that has excellent wear properties in both wet and dry environments. This material is chemically resistant to hydrocarbons, solvents, and neutral chemicals. Easy to machine, and makes an outstanding choice for applications that require complex, tight tolerances.
