The well-balanced mechanical properties of DURACON® POM include self-lubricating fuel resistance. This product was first used commercially for the replacement of steel parts for machines, such as gears, screws and bearings. Today, POM has a wide range of applications from daily household goods (such as zippers and toothbrushes) to automotive parts (for example, mechanical and interior parts, door locks and latches, seat belt retention mechanisms and fuel system components). Examples of its use: AV devices, (parts for DVD recorders, Blu-ray players), office equipment (parts for printers and copy machines), household appliances (parts for washing machines, refrigerators, electric shavers, daily household goods and toys.
