INFINAM® PA12

Polyamide 12 nylons 3D printing materials 

Polyamide 12-based nylon materials - INFINAM® PA12 - convince with their high quality and processing capabilities, and the property profile of each powder is perfectly matched to common powder bed fusion 3D printing technology.

CUSTOMIZED POLYAMIDE 12  (Nylons) 3D printing materials

This high-performance material can be used in selective laser sintering (SLS), high speed sintering (HSS) as wellas multi jet fusion (MJF) technologies and is expected to enable additive production of three-dimensional plastic parts for demanding applications.

Evonik's new grades of PA12 powders convinces with superior mechanical properties and are FDA compliant, as the components printed on the basis of INFINAM® PA12 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.

Key material properties of Pa12 nylons

  • Excellent powder flow properties
  • Easy-to-process
  • Excellent chemical resistance
  • High abrasion resistance
  • High impact strength
  • Reduced carbon footprint
  • Excellent recyclability - ZERO WASTE

Reduced carbon footprint

Our new sustainable INFINAM® PA12 powders are produced using renewable energies at the Marl Chemical Park. TÜV Rheinland has certified the associated life cycle assessments, attesting to an improvement in the company's own carbon footprint of nearly 50 percent. In the overall eco-balance, the comparison of the new sustainable material classes is positive even compared with the castor oil-based polyamides of Evonik's own Terra range . 

Improved reusability - ZERO WASTE

Using innovative powder production technology, powder-based 3D printing processes like SLS, MJF and HSS can be used for part production without any waste of PA12 nylon powder. Just the material which is needed for parts in one production run has to be refreshed to set up the next run.

Three decades of expertise in development of PA12 nylons for 3D printing

With its polyamide 12 nylons, Evonik is a pioneer in the development and manufacturing of PA12 powder materials for PBF 3D printing technologies. Having delivered the group's first powders for additive manufacturing as early as 1996, Evonik has been setting new quality standards that are still valid today. With a variety of innovative high-performance materials ranging from reinforced to flame-retardant powders, we unbound sustainable 3D printing at scale.
