German-headquartered Evonik, an international producer of polyamide 12 powders, has developed a new polymer powder for applications in higher temperature ranges, expanding Evonik’s portfolio of high-performance materials for powder-based 3D printing technologies. The new polyamide powder features high mechanical strength, and chemical and temperature resistance. Its heat deflection temperature is around 195°C. The powder material has low water absorption – below 3 percent — which has a positive effect on processability in 3D printing and the dimensional stability of printed 3D components. The new polymer powder in Evonik’s polyamide 6 series, with its nearly round grain shape, features excellent flowability and application properties, making it suitable for all powder-based 3D printing technologies.
