Celcon® acetal copolymer (POM) possesses a linear structure with a highly crystalline quality that provides a variety of characteristics: Outstanding wear, long-term fatigue, toughness and creep resistance as well as excellent resistance to moisture, solvents and strong alkalis.
Its chemical structure provides a higher stability to thermal and oxidative degradation compared to acetal homopolymers.
POM, which is derived from methanol, can be made from renewable sources like biogas or CO2 emissions.
POM ECO-B is an option that can be applied to any grade in the Celanese POM portfolio. By using the mass-balance process, the benefits of using renewable methanol can be allocated to specific products to help customers meet their sustainability objectives. On a polymer basis, the POM ECO-B option can offer up to 97% renewable content and up to 50% CO2 footprint reduction using waste-based feedstocks.
In a broader context, the inherent characteristics of POM, such as high stiffness, thermal stability, sliding properties and wear resistance, enable enhanced sustainability in many applications by helping make parts that are both longer lasting and lighter.
Most grades comply with FDA and EU food contact regulations (2002/72 EC), and standard products have successfully passed drinking water testing at WRAS, KTW and NSF. MT grades, with an active Drug Master File (No. 11559), comply with USP Class VI guidelines. All products are also available in a wide array of colors that do not contain heavy metals.
