Semi-finished products made of POM, like the ones produced by us, are characterised in particular by their high mechanical strength, good dimensional accuracy and great machinability (short chips facilitate machining on CNC machines).

These factors have made POM a technical plastic that is frequently able to replace metallic materials. In instances where it is used, this results not only in technical improvements, but also in a considerable reduction in costs.

The most noteworthy properties of semi-finished products made of POM are:

  • High mechanical strength
  • Good toughness, even at low temperatures
  • Good spring properties
  • Good dimensional accuracy
  • Low water absorption
  • Good machinability
  • Favourable sliding friction behaviour
  • Good chemical resistance (in particular against highly alkaline media)
  • Good recyclability
