TECAFORM AH TF blue is a POM copolymer with 10% PTFE designed to optimize the material's sliding friction properties. The PTFE is homogenously distributed in the acetal material, and results in an improved slide-friction coefficient and abrasion resistance, coupled with minimal susceptibility to stick-slip effects. Furthermore, the POM-C provides good creep strength and extremely good dimensional stability. The blue colour is often used in the food industry.
