Polyacetal Resin Production Cost Analysis 2020

Polyacetal resin, also known as polyoxymethylene or POM, acetal,  or polyformaldehyde, is an engineering thermoplastic. It is mostly used in precision parts requiring high stiffness and low friction, along with excellent dimensional stability. Like several other synthetic polymers, it is manufactured by distinct chemical firms or manufacturers having different formulas. It is sold by names like Delrin, Ultraform, Celcon, Ramtal, Duracon, Kepital, Polypenco, and Hostaform.

Polyacetal resin is characterised by its high strength, hardness as well as rigidity. It is intrinsically opaque white, which is the result of its high crystalline composition. It is further available in almost all colours. Polyacetal resin is known to have a density of 1.410–1.420 g/cm3. The material is commonly utilised in the automotive and consumer electronics industry. Regular applications for injection-moulded polyacetal resin include high-performance engineering components, like knife handles, small gear wheels, eyeglass frames, fasteners, guns, and lock systems, among others.

Procurement Resource provides an in-depth cost analysis of Purified Polyacetal Resin production. The report incorporates the manufacturing process with detailed process and material flow, capital investment, operating costs along with financial expenses and depreciation charges. The study is based on the latest prices and other economic data available. We also offer additional analysis of the report with detailed breakdown of all cost components (Capital Investment Details, Production Cost Details, Economics for another Plant Location, Dynamic Cost Model).
