Evonik, HP to develop new plastic powders for 3D printing

ESSEN, GERMANY: Evonik Industries and HP Inc partner in developing new plastic powders for 3D printing.

Evonik has developed and produced special plastic materials, which allow for the industrial production of high-tech components in using 3D printing technologies for years. Polyamide 12-based powders VESTOSINT prove with their high quality and processing capabilities, and the property profile of each powder is perfectly matched to the respective 3D printing technology.

The new PA-12 powder can be approved by the Food and Drug Administration for food contact. So, the use of additive manufacturing technologies in food production equipment components which require flexibility due to limited quantities or unique, complex designs is conceivable.

"Through the close partnership with HP and our active participation in the open platform program we anticipate further impetus in the development of new plastic powders for 3D printing use," said Dr Matthias Kottenhahn, head of the business line high performance polymers of Evonik.
