Impact Modified POM and Emission Properties
Dr. Peter Siman, Polyram Plastic Industries LTD
Polyoxymethylene (POM), also known to many by the names acetal, polyacetal and polyformaldehyde, is an engineered thermoplastic with high degree of crystallinity. It is mainly used to mold parts requiring precision, high stiffness, high impact and low friction.
Polyram has succeeded in cracking the copolymer market for impact modified POM with a new family of compounds.
Two New Developments in The Polytron® Family
Polyram has recently launched two new developments, further expanding the wide range of materials available in the company's Polytron family of products.
The first development focuses on low emission (LE) materials, especially suited for use in parts designed for the driver's environment in the automotive industry.
The second development focuses on a compound containing semi-aromatic Nylon (PA9T) as the main polymer.
The new Polyton developments launched support the global trend to reduce the use of metal parts in the automotive industry.
Bonding Is More Than Just Sticking Together
