Title: Vinylester and Polyester 3D Printing

Abstract

ORNL collaborated with Polynt Composites USA to evaluate the feasibility of vinylester and polyester 3D printing. Multiple materials were tested and evaluated. The evaluation consisted of rheology measurements, print trials and mechanical testing. Significant effort was devoted to safe handling of large quantities of these materials. The feasibility of using vinylester and polyester materials for large scale 3D printing has been demonstrated with outstanding issues identified in this report.
