Syensqo Introduces Five Circular Polymers for Appliances and Consumer Goods Syensqo announces the introduction of five new high performance ECHO grades as part of the company’s growing Omnix® ECHO portfolio of circular polymers.

Up to 98% Mass Balanced Allocated Recycled Content

With a mass-balanced (MB) allocated recycled content between 33% and 98% from post-consumer and/or post-industrial (PCR/PIR) sources, including fibers, the new sustainable products offer a considerably reduced product carbon footprint potential. These products maintain the same mechanical performance and superior flowability as PA6 and PA66 all-virgin base materials.

  • Omnix® 1000 ECHO series – Has up to 98% mass-balanced (MB) allocated recycled content, providing up to 56% product carbon footprint (PCF)1 reduction. Ideal for drop-in replacement of conventional polyamide resins.
  • Omnix® FC 6000 ECHO HPPA series (food-contact approved) – Exceeds the performance of PA virgin incumbents. Includes the industry’s first food-contact approved HPPA compound with recycled content (33%, achieving a 34% lower PCF).
  • Omnix® 6000 ECHO HPPA series (non-food-contact) – Delivers a superior balance of higher performance and lower product carbon footprint than engineered polyamides PA6 or PA66 base materials. Up to 83% mass-balanced (MB) allocated recycled content and 45% lower PCF.

As brand owners and manufacturers are seeking to minimize the carbon footprint of their products, our Omnix® ECHO series now offer a range of attractive, ECHO  solutions engineered to enable outstanding sustainability with no compromises on processability, dimensional stability, stiffness, impact strength or surface aspect. The extended ECHO portfolio confirms our industry-leading role as innovators in sustainability,” Ricardo Calumby, global marketing manager Sustainability at Syensqo.

The new Omnix® ECHO series are primarily targeted at household appliances and consumer goods, such as drip and single-serve coffee makers, food processors and slow cookers, ovens and air fryers, kitchen robot chassis and kitchen utensils as well as razor brackets.
