Launch of New DURACON® POM Grades for Food Contact Applications
 
 
Polyplastics Co., Ltd. (president: Noboru Goto, headquarters: Minato-ku, Tokyo, Japan) developed New grades of DURACON (R) POM (polyacetal) that conform with regulations established by the European Union concerning food contact and drinking water supply applications. Polyplastics will begin sale of a grade for injection molding (2 types) and a grade for solid phase extrusion molding (1 type).

DURACON (R) POM is used for food contact and drinking water supply applications in Japan, the US, and Asia due to its balanced mechanical properties and superior creep resistance, fatigue resistance, chemical resistance, and dimensional stability. Recently, new grades have been developed that conform with regulations established by the European Union. Polyplastics is now endeavoring to expand the market for DURACON (R) POM worldwide. The new grades have good mechanical properties and moldability confirmed to be equivalent to or greater than those of existing grades.
