INOVYN AWARD 2016: 3D Vinyl™, the world’s first printable PVC filament, was awarded “Gold” in the prime category “Innovations”.
Chemson, global market leader and innovative manufacturer of polymer additives, was presented with one of the much-coveted INOVYN Awards 2016 for the world’s first PVC filament suitable for 3D printing. For its 3D Vinyl™, Chemson was awarded “Gold” in the “Innovations” category. The awards ceremony took place as part of the “K2016”, the world’s leading trade fair for plastics and rubber that was held in Düsseldorf from 19 – 26 October 2016.
Chemson received the “INOVYN Award Gold” in the “Innovations” category from an impartial international jury for its 3D Vinyl™, the world’s first PVC formulation that is suitable for 3D printing and fully recyclable to boot. Chemson has thus won the most prestigious award in the main category “INOVYN Award for Innovation with Vinyls”, where more than 70 entries competed for one of the much-coveted awards. The INOVYN Award is considered one of the most important awards in the PVC. Alexander Hofer, Chemson CEO, had this to say on the success of his group: “We feel honoured to have been presented with the “INOVYN Award” for our sustainable PVC formulation for 3D printing. We believe that applications such as prototyping will in future be primarily handled using 3D printing, and we wanted to be part of this development from the very first!”
