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 a 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.
