TECAFORM AX: a versatile material

29 March 2012

POM homopolymers provide impressive mechanical properties such as strength and stiffness, while copolymers are characterized by good chemical resistance. With TECAFORM AX, Ensinger is now offering a new semi-finished product (POM-C) which combines all of these beneficial properties. Its impact strength has also been improved in comparison to previous TECAFORM products.

The new characteristics profile offers an added benefit primarily in the field of food processing. Improved mechanical properties with undiminished chemical resistance to conventional cleaning agents further extends the application spectrum of POM as an engineering plastic for use in this field. TECAFORM AX complies with regulatory requirements such as FDA and (EU) 10/2011 for repeated contact with foods.

For mechanical engineering applications involving contact with lubricants, improved chemical resistance can offer an additional benefit when compared with homopolymers.

Other industries that might benefit from the use of TECAFORM AX are the transport and conveying technology sectors, the automotive industry, electrical engineering, home appliances and precision engineering. Typical applications include stirring and kneading elements, rollers, casters, sliding bearings, sliding rails, gears, spring elements, connectors, insulators, housing components, snap connectors and seals.
