INFINAM® TPA

Thermoplastic amide powders

Evonik has developed the world's first flexible plastic material based on TPA (thermoplastic amide) stands out for its high elasticity and strength and is suitable for a variety of powder-based 3D printing technologies.

flexible plastic material based on TPA

3D printed parts made from the TPA powder show a high degree of flexibility, excellent resistance to chemicals and outstanding durability over a wide temperature range from -40°C to 90°C. The powder is also ideally suited for the manufacture of functional 3D high-tech plastic parts – for prototypes as well as series products.

The flexible synthetic powder was optimized for use in EOS laser sintering systems as part of an intensive development collaboration between the specialty chemicals company and the leading technology provider for industrial 3D printing of metals and polymers.
