Acetal (POM) Engineering Property Data

Acetal, also known as polyacetal, polyoxymethylene (POM), or polyformaldehyde, is a high performance engineering polymer.  Because of its high strength, modulus, and resistance to impact and fatigue, it is used as a weight-saving metal replacement.  Acetal is subject to degradation in acid and base solutions and is not readily available in a flame-retardant grade.  Acetal, first developed in the late 1950s, is available as a homopolymer (such as DuPont Delrin®) or copolymer (such as Ticona's Celcon®).
