Evonik is one of the world's largest manufacturers of polyamide 12 (PA 12), which is marketed under the name VESTAMID® L. And we are currently increasing our capacity by more than 50% to ensure that we remain your reliable partner in the future.
Polyamide 612 (PA612), which we market under the name VESTAMID® D, has a higher heat resistance than PA 12 and is therefore also suitable for the patented plastic-rubber composites without adhesion promoters.
POLYAMIDE 12 ELASTOMERS
Our VESTAMID® E PA 12 elastomers (PEBA) belong to the increasingly important class of materials known as thermoplastic elastomers (TPE). They are characterized by high elasticity and good resilience. The latest development is a flexible foam with extraordinary ball resiliency.
The VESTAMID® Terra family comprises a group of polyamides based on renewable raw materials: the monomers are obtained in whole or in part from castor oil, a raw material that is used neither as food nor as animal feed and whose cultivation does not compete with land used to grow food.
Polyamides for industrial pipes
VESTAMID® NRG was developed specifically for the oil and gas industry, but is now also used in other industrial pipes. It has very good chemical resistance and is characterized in particular by high impact strength and excellent stress crack resistance.
YOUR PARTNER, FROM THE ORIGINAL IDEA TO THE FINAL PRODUCT
As a partner to our customers, we are far more than a producer of high-grade polymers: Our aim is rather to develop technically sophisticated system solutions in close collaboration with you. In this we draw on our many years of experience in application technology, which we make available to our partners in development.
To support our cooperation and partnership we have established an online order system to provide our existing European direct customers with access to personalized order information. It doesn´t matter how you place your orders (fax, telephone, online), you will be able to review the following information for all your orders 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, on 365 days in the year:
- obtain information on the status of your orders, rapidly and reliably,
- change orders directly without the need for additional phone calls and faxes, and
- send us your orders within seconds and with the minimum of mouse-clicks, and
- view, print or download documents relating to orders, such as invoices, safety data sheets, and analysis certificates.
CAMPUS® stands for Computer Aided Material Preselection by Uniform Standards, a plastics data base which is updated regularly.
