Evonik has opened another production line for specialty PA 12 powders in Marl.
Evonik has opened another production line for specialty PA 12 powders in Marl.

Evonik Industries has opened another production line for specialty polyamide 12 powders (PA 12) of its VESTOSINT brand at its largest global production site in the Marl Chemical Park in Germany. The new facility primarily produces high-performance powders for the 3-D printing market, which is expanding heavily with double-digit growth rates.

The investment for the new VESTOSINT plant is in the mid double-digit million Euro range. With the new plant, Evonik is increasing its existing annual capacities for PA 12 powders by 50%.

The specialty chemicals company manufactures its high-performance powders from PA 12 granulate in a proprietary process in its integrated production network for polyamide 12 products.

Polyamide 12 is part of our strategic Smart Materials growth engine that involves optimizing the performance and efficiency of products with improved materials. We significantly expanded our polyamide 12 powder plant in Marl in order to support the development of future-oriented technologies such as 3-D printing with innovative solutions,” says Harald Schwager, deputy chairman of the Executive Board of Evonik Industries.

Evonik markets the high-performance polymer polyamide 12 as a powder under the VESTOSINT brand, for example for coating metals in household goods, dishwasher baskets, in the automotive industry or in medical technology.

In addition, Evonik has for many years been engaged in the development of specialty polymer powders that enable the industrial production of high-tech components based on 3-D printing. VESTOSINT stands out for its high quality and is fully optimized for the corresponding 3-D printing technology in terms of processing and property profiles.
