Solvay Engineering Plastics has rolled out Sinterline, a polyamide 6 powder for Selected Laser Sintering that is adapted for use in 3D printing. "The end goal is to see end-use parts in nylon, so we're just bringing Sinterline to the market. It has higher properties than PA11 and PA12," said Steve Penny, Solvay's product engineering manager in North America. While it was developed with the additive manufacturing market in mind, Sinterline Marketing Innovation Manager Ralph Risse also notes its potential for use in the automotive aftermarket.
