Hostaform SlideX POM
All-in-One, Tribologically Modified Acetal Copolymer
At Fakuma 2014, Celanese Corporation launched a new, all-in-one, tribologically modified acetal copolymer called Hostaform SlideX POM. This compound enables the production of injection molded parts with a very low coefficient of friction and wear rate; reducing energy loss, heat generation and noise in mechanical systems for industrial, transportation and consumer products and applications.
Hostaform SlideX POM is a competitive alternative to various kinds of high-performance tribologically modified compounds. When compared to alternative materials, Hostaform SlideX POM offers a significantly lower coefficient of friction without compromising high mechanical performance. With a high mechanical property profile, the new POM grade is well suited for applications such as gear shift systems, stabilizer joints, roller shutter devices, furniture slide systems, or speed masters. In addition, the use of external lubricants such as oil or grease can be eliminated when Hostaform SlideX POM is used for superior design of a durable part.
