Pomalux® WRX

Pomalux WRX (Wear resistant polyoxymethylene copolymer) is made from resin that is suitable for use in certain food contact applications, contact your local Westlake Plastics representative for specific regulatory declarations. Pomalux WRX is an internally lubricated acetal copolymer. It offers enhanced wear and abrasion resistance and lower coefficients of friction compared to Pomalux WR and is similarly formulated with a PFOA free permanent lubricant. Pomalux WRX offers enahnced wear and friction performance versus PTFE filled POMc without the risk of voids and inclusions that are commonly associated with compression molded and extruded PTFE filed POMc. Pomalux WRX offers high strength and stiffness and good chemical resistance making it an ideal material for load bearing and transmitting components where enhanced wear, abrasion and low friction performance are critical performance requirements such as gears, bearing, chain guides and other conveyor components. Product is available in natural (off white) and black. Other colors are available on a make to order basis.
