Polyoxymethylene (POM) is a semi-crystalline thermoplastic characterized by high strength and stiffness. We differentiate between homopolymers (POM H) and copolymer polyoxymethylene (POM C). Low water absorption.

  • Good UV resistance
  • High dimensional stability
  • Low moisture absorption
  • Excellent slip properties
  • High abrasion resistance
  • Ideal combination of strength, stiffness and toughness
  • Low tendency to creep
  • Good machinability
  • Good electric and dielectric properties



POM H has low moisture absorption and high gas density. This enables tight tolerances to be adhered to in the machining of complex parts. POM H has high hardness, stiffness and toughness and high heat distortion resistance. Furthermore, POM H has high dimensional stability, good electrical insulation properties, good slip and wear properties and is resistant to stress crack formation.

POM H also has good resistance to many chemicals. The material can be used in a long-term temperature range from -50 °C to approx. 90 °C. POM H also offers very good machining properties. POM H is approved for foods.


POM H has high dimensional stability, particularly with tight tolerances.
POM H has very good machining properties and can also be processed in other ways. POM H can be processed in numerous ways, e.g. turning, milling, sawing, drilling, punching, welding, thermoforming, cold bending, deep drawing, electroplating.
