Polyoxymethylene is an engineering plastic that is recognized as|also called|also referred to as} acetal. It could be injection molded into components that require low friction, high stiffness, and excellent dimensional stability. Because they've a extremely crystalline structure, POM plastics are naturally opaque and white in colour. Acrylics have a high tensile energy to high precision machining resist masses, won’t absorb odors, and could be held to tight tolerances throughout injection molding. The materials additionally resists sunlight and weather, which makes it suitable for out of doors use.
