Evonik Industries AG, Essen, Germany, today officially broke ground in Marl, Germany, for construction of a new production plant for specialty polyamide 12 (PA12) powders. The specialty chemicals company will thus increase annual capacity for its Vestosint brand of PA12 powders by 50 percent. The amount invested lies in the mid-double-digit million euro range. The new plant is scheduled to come on stream at the end of 2017.

Dr. Claus Rettig, Chairman of the Management Board of Evonik Resource Efficiency GmbH, says: "Our polyamide 12 powders are targeted at highly attractive markets such as the coatings industry and additive manufacturing. We see strong potential for growth here. New production capacities in Marl will enable us to service the growing demand for specialty high-performance polymers."

Evonik’s Resource Efficiency Segment is the market leader in polyamide 12 powders, which are marketed under the Vestosint brand name. The powders are used, for example, for coating of metals in household goods such as dishwasher racks, in the automotive industry, and in medical technology. For many years Evonik has also been developing specialty polymer powders that allow industrial production of high-tech components in 3D printing.
