POM is a semicrystalline thermoplastic and is characterized by a low coefficient of friction and good wear properties, unaffected by wet environments. POM offers good resistance to a wide range of chemicals including many solvents. As water absorption is almost nil, dimensional accuracy and stability is higher than that of Nylons. Acetal provides high strength and stiffness coupled with easy machineability. ZELLAMID® 900 is also noted for its high mechanical strength, heat resistance and good antifriction properties. ZELLAMID® 900 is according to ASTM D 6100 porosity free and most formulations are approved for contact with food (BfR, FDA compliant). For parts which need to be dimensional stable even exposed to humid or wet environments copolymeric Acetal offers better hot water, thermal and chemical resistance than homopolymeric Acetal.
