Replacing Nylon 6 Parts with Polyacetal (POM) material in Wet Grinder
During 1990’s Nylon 6 material was widely used in Wet Grinder Components, Mixer Grinder components, Food Processor Components due to the Nylon material water absorption problems and frequent wear and tear of the components. The Wet grinder company was looking for alternative materials to use instead of Nylon 6 materials.
Then, we provided samples of Polyacetal copolymer (POM) to replace Nylon 6 Components. We were involved in sampling, mold corrections and Product Testing of the end product and Field trials and finally got approval for the POM components. This one application gave us 100 to 200 MT POM market in India. Today, it is grown as a big market for such products.
