Acetal Sheets & Rods

Versatile Acetal Plastic 

Ensinger TECAFORM POM Acetal Sheets & Rods are a highly versatile engineering material

Ensinger TECAFORM POM, also called polyoxymethylene, Acetal and Delrin, is a semi-crystalline thermoplastic offering high strength and rigidity up to -40C. This polymer has very sliding characteristics and resistance to wear, as well as low moisture absorption. The density of of POM is 1.410–1.420 g/cm. The exceptional dimensional stability and particularly good fatigue strength, as well as excellent machining ability, make POM a highly versatile engineering material, especially for complex machinery components.

POM / Acetal Applications

POM or Acetal are generally used in mechanical engineering, conveyor technology, precision engineering, automotive industry, food engineering, electrical engineering, home appliances or medical technology.

POM / Acetal Properties

  • High strength
  • Resistant to cleaning agents
  • Stiff
  • High toughness
  • Very good electrical insulation
  • Good machinability
  • Good slide and wear properties
  • Difficult to bond

The Rod and Sheet machining capabilities are good, with traditional methods used including turning, milling, drilling and cutting. The sheets are easily cut with an infrared laser cutter, but as with all plastics, care should be taken with clamping.

Ensinger TECAFORM POM or Acetal (AH POM-C) are available in sheets or rods. They come in 2 colours: White Opaque and Black.
