POM suitable for technical items
At Idé-Pro, we injection mold plastic items in various plastic materials with different properties. POM, for instance, has favourable properties such as low friction and high wear resistance, which make it suitable for technical items.
Technical items at Idé-Pro
Polyoxymethylene (POM) is a thermoplastic and at Idé-Pro we injection mold items in different types of POM. The material has a high stiffness and highly crystalline structure, which is achieved at a mould temperature of at least 110˚. POM has low friction, preventing squeaking noises, and good shape stability, making it suitable for items requiring high precision, such as small gears. POM is also considered the spring of plastic, so it is also used for plastic items requiring spring properties. Also, POM has good chemical resistance to solvents and is resistant to hydrolysis as well as thermal and oxidative degradation.
Selecting the right material
We have a broad knowledge of materials in both plastic, light metal, and EPS/EPP and are happy to help you with advice when you are selecting the material for your item. Read more about our materials and find our material lists here. If you have further questions about POM or other materials, you are always welcome to contact us. We also offer advice within sustainable materials.
