Attributes

Pomalux Polyoxymethylene (POMC) is a high-performance acetal copolymer. POMC is a 100% recyclable, semi-crystalline engineering thermoplastic most commonly used for a wide range of engineering applications. The material has excellent mechanical, electrical, and wear properties. It is engineered to provide outstanding dimensional stability, even when machining parts with complex geometries.

Pomalux is an excellent choice for many bearing and wear applications since it has low coefficient of friction and wears well in both wet and dry environments. It is widely used for assembly jigs and fixtures because of its inherent dimensional stability and excellent wear properties. These include automotive, electrical & electronic, industrial, and drug delivery applications, gears, bearings, snap fittings and many other engineering components.

Pomalux is often specified for electrical applications when low moisture absorption and high dielectric strength are required.

Both natural (white) and black Pomalux are FDA compliant for use in food processing machinery. Westlake Plastics extrudes and compression molds Pomalux across several product sub-families, including: Pomalux GF, Pomalux SD-A, Pomalux CN-P, and Pomalux CN-F.
