Evonik and Evolve Additive Solutions Inc have announced a joint development agreement to adapt Evonik’s thermoplastic materials for use in Evolve's 3D printing systems.

The companies reportedly plan to focus initially on polyamide 12, polyether block amide (PEBA), transparent polyamide and polymer of the polyamide 6 series.

‘Evolve's entirely new technology approach will allow us to expand the range of applications of our high-performance materials, which are produced through a unique production process,’ said Thomas Grosse-Puppendahl, head of additive manufacturing at Evonik.
