TECAFORM AH GF25 natural

POM-C glass fibre reinforced

POM GF25 is a special glass filled acetal with 25% glass fibre reinforcement. Ensinger manufactures this POM composite under the trade name TECAFORM AH GF25. In comparison to POM-C unfilled, POM GF25 demonstrates optimised properties in a number of different areas. The properties POM GF25 exibits, makes it suitable for use in parts that are exposed to high static loads over long periods in high temperature conditions. This glass filled acetal has high mechanical strength, outstanding wear resistance, and has very high dimensional stability. In addition to this, POM GF25 also offers high electrical insulation and exceptional chemical resistance. However,​ as glass fibres tend in some cases to have a marked abrasive effect on mating surfaces, POM GF25 is less suitable for sliding applications. ​
