Evonik partners in HP Inc.’s Open Platform program for new 3D printing materials

Evonik partners in HP Inc.’s Open Platform Programm


Evonik Industries is driving forward its commitment to the attractive 3D printing market: The specialty chemicals company participates in HP Inc.’s Open Platform program and introduce new customized powder materials to the market for HP Multi Jet Fusion™ technology. 


3D-PRINTING: WE HAVE THE RIGHT MATERIALS

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® convince with their high quality and processing capabilities, and the property profile of each powder is perfectly matched to the respective 3D printing technology.



Due to their mechanical properties and chemical resistance as well as the high melting point of finished products, PA12 powders are particularly suitable for use in powder-based 3D printing processes. 

CUSTOM POLYMER POWDER CERTIFIED FOR HP JET FUSION 3D PRINTERS

VESTOSINT® is a modified polyamide-based powder that is produced at Evonik’s Marl site in Germany using the company’s own special process. The powders are certified for HP Jet Fusion 3D printer.
