New Cost and Performance Options for High-Performance Polyamides
Omnix® HPPA is a family of high-performance polyamides that bridge the cost-performance gap between lower-performing PA66 and higher performing polyphthalamide, such as Amodel® PPA.
Omnix® 4050, a 50% glass fiber reinforced compound, is especially interesting and is available in black and natural grades. The off-white color of the natural resin provides excellent colorability.
Why Omnix® HPPA?
- Higher heat resistance than PA66
- Lower moisture absorption than PA66 for higher strength and stiffness
- Better dimensional stability and lower warpage
- Good chemical resistance
- Efficient, cost-effective manufacturing
Omnix® HPPA is used in many markets. We have already developed applications in automotive for interior and exterior parts. In the consumer area, applications such as coffee machines and fryers. In the construction area, a support for steps is just one example. We are widely present with Omnix® HPPA in healthcare, oil & gas and renewable energy. Omnix® HPPA is also present in sports and leisure products.
The Omnix® HPPA product line is built on two base resins, each offering distinct product and processing features. Products are available in a variety of glass-filled, food contact, and potable water grades. Omnix® HPPA resins are available in black and natural grades. The off-white color of the natural resin provides excellent colorability.
