High-Performance Polyamides Designed to Deliver More Performance Options
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.
Of special interest is Omnix® 4050, a 50% glass fiber reinforced compound, that is available in black and natural grades. The off-white color of the natural resin provides excellent colorability.
- Higher heat resistance than PA66 for applications less thermally demanding than PPA
- Lower moisture absorption than PA66 for higher strength and stiffness, better dimensional stability and lower warpage
- Good chemical resistance
- Efficient, cost-effective manufacturing

Cost-Effective Metal Replacement
Omnix® HPPA is ideally suited for use when PA66 reaches its limit temperature or when the hydrolytic stability of PA66 is no longer sufficient. It is an economical alternative to die-cast alloys for components used in:
- Electrical / Electronics
- Building and construction
- Industrial applications
- Consumer Goods
