Mr. hetzke said that in a multi-step process, Evonik starts from butadiene, converts it into monomer laurolactam through various intermediate steps, and then polymerizes it into polyamide 12
polyamide 12 can then be further processed into a mixture and produced into various special chemicals by adding additives to the raw polymer. Evonik's polyamide 12 products with quality problems mainly include vestami. This process also integrates trexel's MuCell Microcellular Foaming Technology D structural materials and vestosint powder coatings
