Hamburg, December 1, 2023 - With immediate effect, TER Chemicals GmbH & Co. KG, a long-standing partner, is taking over the distribution of selected INFINAM® 3D printing powders from Evonik throughout Europe. The new distribution agreement covers the products polyamide 12 (glass bead-filled or with flame retardant additive), polyamide 613 and the elastomer powders INFINAM® TPA and TPC, which are ideally suited for direct use in selective laser sintering (SLS).
