POM AST

POM – Polyacetal

POM AST

POM AST is an anti-static polyacetal (POM-C). In terms of its technical properties, the material is an ideal choice for electronics applications. It has a surface resistivity of 10^10 Ω and an electrical resistivity of 10^9 Ω. POM-C AS does not contain any carbon, which makes it suitable for use in clean-room applications with strict hygiene requirements.
