Recent Developments

October 2021- Evonik has begun to offer its customers the following sustainable polyamide 12 molding compounds. The company has announced that it is now possible to produce selected commercial VESTAMID products by using sustainable energy at Evonik’s Marl Chemical Park based in Germany. the life cycle evaluations of the compounds received a certificate from the TÜV Rheinland in September 2021.
For over 50 years, at the Marl Chemical Park based at the North Rhine-Westphalia, the company has been manufacturing polyamide 12 with the use of steam and electricity generated, thus its state-of-the-art and effective joint heat and power plants. With the use of biomethane obtained from the waste generated in the plants, the emissions of carbon dioxide generated during the production of VESTAMID RFP is lowered by over 40 percent, with the land use and water consumption being the same.
Evonik, since 2009, has also commercialized VESTAMID Terra molding compounds based on monomers derived from castor oil. VESTAMID RFP displays an enhanced eco-balance: the carbon footprint is lowered by 40 percent, as land use and water consumption are more than 99 percent lower.

Jan 2021
Ineos Styrolution has declared the first results of the PolySLS project, which is determined on developing a novel energy-saving styrenics-based material for additive manufacturing, otherwise identified as 3D printing. The project has shown meaningful overall energy savings of up to 67% have been accomplished when taking the entire life cycle of a novel styrenic polymer compound into account as associated with traditional polyamide 12 (PA12). A direct energy saving of 25% was attained from the 3D-printing equipment when exploiting the novel styrenics polymer, stemming from lower process temperatures and quicker heating and cooling phases. This also amended the time required for comprehensive printing jobs, with processing times 7.5 % shorter than PA12.

Nov 2020 Evonik Germany's construction work on the principal investing to date by the specialty chemicals corporation at more than USD 473 million is progressing well. The first plant was accomplished on schedule in mid-October and is presently being made to order. Other plants will follow by the first quarter of 2021, with full completion expected in the first half of 2021, a statement said. Evonik will increase its overall capacity for the polymer by more than 50%. Polyamide 12 is an essential part of their unique applications' strategic development. Polyamide 12 is used in attractive growth markets such as gas piping, sports, automotive engineering, and 3D printing.

Oct 2020 AerosUSA is offering its PA 12 highly flexible and PA12-D heavy grade flexible conduits in stock that are ready for delivery. AerosUSA is also revealing a synergistic product to these conduits recognized as the RQMR-Move. The RQMR-Move is a single addition to its conduit clamping systems, allowing greater flexibility at the clamp in continuous vibration and movement usages. The PA12 conduit is very flexible and mass-produced from high grade, mainly devised polyamide 12 materials. This product has been executed in robotic applications requiring constant bending and flexing in the course of manufacturing production processes.

June 2020 Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation (MCC) and AM Polymers GmbH (AMP), a new German materials start-up business, have entered into a select joint development and commercial business agreement on polybutylene terephthalate (PBT) powder product for industrial 3D printing. This partnership offers MCC and AMP an opportunity to expand their product portfolio for 3D printing further. SLS/PBF is a process by which users can achieve complex geometries at a short production lead time. Coupled with good mechanical properties, PBT powder has much lower moisture absorption characteristics than polyamide 12, a common material for SLS and PBF processes. Therefore, MCC and AMP imagine new PBT powder products for industrial applications such as aerospace and automotive. This unique collaboration enables MCC and AMP to accelerate development in 3D printing further.
