Duraform / Acetal (POM)
Duraform is from the line of acetal (polyoxymethylene, POM) copolymer. Acetal is an engineering thermoplastic used in precision parts that require high surface hardness, low friction and excellent dimensional stability. The Duraform range comprises a range of compounds having varied properties designed for use in wearing parts and applications where moisture absorption is a problem. They combine high rigidity with mechanical strength and afford good elastic properties, high toughness, dimensional stability and excellent frictional properties.
Advantages of Acetal based plastics:
Disadvantages of Acetal based plastics:
Duraform can be produced with these additional features
Impact modified - (Improved Strength & Stiffness attributes)
