POM (polyoxymethylene or acetal) is a thermoplastic which belongs to the family of polyacetals. This is available in two forms: Homopolymer (POM-H) and Copolymer (POM-C). POM-H benefits from mechanical properties but less resistance to UV rays, while POM-C has better chemical and thermal properties. This material is characterized by very high impact resistance, while maintaining good flexibility, high tensile and breaking strength, as well as good electrical insulation.
POM-C ESD filament from Apium is an ideal option for the replacement of metal components, due to its light-weight feel and high resisitibility. Use POM-C ESD for chemical technology, semiconductor technology, textiles, computer technology, and more.
