Title: Silicone elastomers dedicated to Additive Manufacturing, from prototypes to functional parts

Event Type: Sponsored Session

Cost: Free Education


Description

If we focus on the materials for the 3D printing, one can see that the majority of raw materials are thermosetting resins even if the need of soft materials is now a reality for Additive Manufacturing of functional materials. Today, flexible materials are mostly used for prototyping with most of the time strong compromises on the physico-chemical and mechanical properties. In this lecture, we propose to fulfil this challenge thanks to the new silicone elastomer technologies dedicated to the additive manufacturing. Some printing processes and physicochemical properties will be reviewed to show why the silicone elastomers are suitable to meet the needs of 3D-printing soft materials.
