Evonik offers nylon 12 alternatives while plant repaired

By European Plastics News staff
Posted 27 April 2012

Evonik has confirmed it is offering customers polyamide alternatives following the fire in the CDT plant at its Marl facility in Germany, which has led to a shortage of PA 12 material.

As previously reported by European Plastics News, Evonik says it is offering extrusion and injection moulding compounds based on PA 610, PA 612, PA 1010, and PA 1012, which do not require CDT as a precursor. They are available in “smaller volumes during plant repairs”, which Evonik expects to last until the fourth quarter.

The company says in a statement: “They are particularly suitable for use in line systems in the automotive supply industry, including the multi-layer tubing systems patented by Evonik. One such substitute is the bio-based VESTAMID Terra, already being used by the automotive industry.”
