At less than 3%, Evonik’s Infinam polyamide has a low water absorption rate, which the company said has positive effects on both the processability in 3D printing and the dimensional stability of the printed component. 

According to the companies, Levhoss developed a Luvosint carbon fiber reinforced powder variant for laser sintering created from Evonik’s PA 613 base polymer.
