Omnix® FC-9050 is a 50% glass-fiber reinforced high-performance polyamide. It is hot-water moldable and intended for use in components requiring superior mechanical properties even after moisture absorption.
Omnix® FC-9050 is characterized by high stiffness and strength, very good impact properties, good dimensional stability and high flow properties. This material is an economical alternative for food service applications using die-cast alloys.
Omnix® FC-9050 is approved for food contact and meets FDA regulations for Omnix® FC-9050 NT 000 (natural) and Omnix® FC-9050 BK 000 (black) based on clearances granted by FCN 001242 for repeated use food contact applications with all food types, under FDA conditions of use B through H as described in Tables 1 and 2 of 21 CFR 176.170(c).
It processes readily using conventional injection molding machines and methods. Water-cooled molds are suitable for use with this grade.
