|Polyoxymethylene, or POM,
also known as polytrioxane or polyformaldehyde, is a highly
resilient engineering plastic formed from the polymerization
of formaldehyde. POM is translucent and tough, and possesses
good electrical properties. It is generally resistant
to creep and most organic solvents and is abrasion resistant.
These properties make POM a good substitute for metals
such as copper, zinc and aluminum and thus it is commonly
used in producing bearings, gears, snap fittings, plumbing
fittings, appliance casings and many other engineering
We plan to construct a production facility that can produce
60,000 tones of polyoxymethylene a year at our complex
in Inner Mongolia. Construction is expected to start in
November 2006 and be completed by November 2008.
