Polyoxymethylne (POM) (s. acetal copolymers)
Product category: Compounds/Blends
The perfect fit of the material is a precondition for the design to evolve the required functionality, safety and life cycle. This means value for the customer. When looking for a suitable plastic, the application conditions involved determine the material selection. For this reason, specific framework conditions such as the planned purpose, the field of application and further-reaching details relating the characteristics and application conditions must be known in advance.
With this information linked with our experience, we can compare different materials and technical parameters and evaluate the best solution for this application. Only by following this procedure is it possible for Ensinger to provide qualified material advice. However, the material selection can only be a recommendation, which will require verification by practical testing.
Overview of criteria for selecting material:
thermal stress mechanical stress tribological stress chemical stress physiological harmlessness thermal conduction / insulation electrical requirements optical requirements fire behaviour weather resistance radiation exposure special specifications electrical requirements optical requirements fire behaviour weather resistance radiation exposure special specifications
To support the material selection process, our application engineering advisors will be pleased to assist you.
Ensinger Compounds offers products with improved sliding friction properties, materials with defined electrical characteristics and compounds for medical Technology. Detectable or thermally conducting and light weight plastics are also part of the innovative product range.
Ensinger has been focussed on the development and production of tribologicaly optimized materials (less wear, less friction), medical technology / foodstuffs technology, electrically conducting plastics, thermal conducting plastics, melt filtration of high temperature plastics, detectable plastics.

The structure of the company, the specialisation of employees and the big range of versatile machinery at our disposal give us flexibility, meaning we can handle small quantities as well as material for series production. Our vast range including hundreds of combinations of materials and additives allows a materials specialist to think both in terms of individual formulae as well as in tried and tested standard solutions.
Above all Ensinger Compounds processes high temperature polymers as well as engineering plastics. Standard plastics are also used for the production of special compounds.
We use cutting-edge testing and measuring equipment to investigate, rigidity, sliding properties, viscosity, remnant moisture content and other properties on ASTM and DIN test pieces produced on our injection moulding machines. Our production is certified to:
DIN EN ISO 9001 DIN EN ISO 13485
Our materials specialists work ceaselessly on basic development and design of special compounds for injection moulding and extrusion. Their wealth of experience is a valuable support in the development of the special compounds you want and need.
Ensinger Compounds develops and manufactures high-performance compounds which are optimized with the aid of fillers and additives. In addition to proven standard materials, we also create individual solutions: compounds tailor-made to customer needs.
Ensinger produces compounds, semi-finished products and finished parts, complete assemblies and precision profiles from high-performance plastics. Further development of proven production techniques, new applications and international expansion have earned this family-owned enterprise a place among the leaders in its field. With 28 production and sales locations and a workforce of 2,300 employees, Ensinger is represented globally.
