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.

Key features

  • 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:

  • Automotive
  • Electrical / Electronics
  • Building and construction
  • Industrial applications
  • Consumer Goods
