Pomalux Resin By Westlake Plastics
Pomalux is a high-performance acetal copolymer that 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. 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 Company manufactures all Acetal extruded & compression molded sheets, plates and rods in accordance to ASTM D6100. This specification covers requirement and test methods for the material, dimensions, workmanship and the properties of extruded and compression molded sheets, plates and rods.
