  • Publication number: 20190329452
    Abstract: An additive elastomeric manufactured part having an elongation at break of at least 50% may be made by a method comprising the following. A material comprising a prepolymer and filler is first dispensed through a nozzle to form an extrudate deposited on a base. The base, nozzle or combination thereof is moved while dispensing the material so that there is horizontal displacement between the base and nozzle in a predetermined pattern to form an initial layer of the material on the base. Subsequent layers are then formed on the initial layer by repeating the dispensing and movement on top of the initial layer and layers that follow.

  • Publication number: 20190248065
    Abstract: An additive manufactured article is comprised of at least two adhered layers of extrudates (120) comprised of a thermoset material having therein a phase change material, wherein the phase change material undergoes a phase change at a temperature less than where the thermoset material decomposes. The article may be made by dispensing a mixture comprised of an organic reactive material and phase change material forming extrudates that are 3D printed into an article having multiple layers of extrudates bound together and then allowing the organic reactive material to react forming a thermoset material having therein the phase change material to form the additive manufactured article. The shape of the article may be changed by heating to a temperature above the temperature where the phase change material undergoes a phase change while applying a force and then cooling below the phase change temperature.

  • Publication number: 20190017222
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present disclosure include flexible impregnated articles, composites produced by curing such flexible impregnated article, and processes for forming flexible impregnated articles. The flexible impregnated articles, composites, and processes can be used as alternatives to articles, composites, and processes in a cured-in-place pipe rehabilitation process that include epoxy resins, thus eliminating toxicity issues associated with the use of epoxy resins. The instantly-disclosed flexible impregnated articles, composites, and processes can be particularly useful for the CIPP process in potable water pipe and pressure pipe applications.

  • Patent number: 10100168
    Abstract: The inventions is directed to a method for recovering support materials used in an additive manufacturing process. The method comprises exposing a precursor additive manufactured article comprised of a water soluble support polymer and an insoluble material to water. The water soluble support polymer is dissolved in the water. The remaining article is then removed from the water. The dissolved water soluble polymer is precipitated from the water. The precipitated polymer is separated from the water and any remaining water removed to recover the water soluble support polymer. The recovered water soluble support polymer may then be re-used to make further additive manufactured articles.
