Evonik Opens New Polyamide 12 Powder Plant 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. 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 volume 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 percent. 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. 

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. 

Evonik has developed customized high-performance materials for demanding applications for over 50 years. The company is a global leader in the production of polyamide 12 polymers, which are in large demand in highly attractive markets such as the automotive industry, oil and gas production, medicine, or sports.
