Even though 3D printing is an emerging market and technology, aside from Defense Distributed’s gun, it seems like it has hit a plateau.

Company develops new fiber-reinforced wood, concrete ink for 3D printing

You can make little or somewhat-bigger-than-little figurines, teacups and mugs that often have leaks, or fragile parts — such as gears — that you can include in a working item, but might quickly wear down. One of the things holding 3D printing back is the material used to print objects. A San Francisco-based company, Emerging Objects, has created new printing materials that aren’t just plastic, but composed of wood, concrete, and even salt. For the uninitiated, normal 3D printing is additive. A nozzle (or nozzles) squirts out a material — usually some kind of plastic in a gooey state — and meticulously dumps layers of plastic onto a base, following the schematics of a preset model. Emerging Objects has developed a wealth of new materials, such as paper (made from recycled newsprint) as well as a printable salt material.

However, new developments and investments are foreseen: the first European industrial-scale PLA plant by 2014, the introduction of future PET production facilities by 2015, recent developments in the commercialization of bio-based PBT and further advancements in the field of high-value fine chemicals for PA, PUR and thermosets production. Although Europe shows a strong demand for bio-based polymers, production tends to take place elsewhere, namely in Asia and America. The European Union’s relatively weak position in the production of bio-based polymers is largely the consequence of an unfavourable political framework for the industrial material use of biomass. The European market data presents the latest findings of production capacities of bio-based polymers in Europe based on the market study published by the nova-Institute in spring this year and its continuously updated database.

» Bioplastics and global sustainability

Bioplastics are derived from renewable sources and may contain substantial amounts of biobased materials and/or exhibit biodegradation under various conditions. In essence, bioplastics describe two concepts at the same time: disposability and renewable sourcing.1 Both are driven by environmental sustainability, which includes the desire to reduce greenhouse-gas emissions (notably of carbon dioxide, CO2), to displace and/or reduce our dependence on crude oil, and to improve the disposability of plastic materials.

Figure 1 presents a classification scheme of plastic materials based on these concepts. Www.hgca.com/publications/documents/Bioplastics_web28409.pdf. Market_Study_Bioplastics.pdf. Polymers  Luisa Pereira and Manuela Donoso collaborated on this musical instrument made of elastics and light.

Polymers

Introduction Prior to the early 1920's, chemists doubted the existence of molecules having molecular weights greater than a few thousand. This limiting view was challenged by Hermann Staudinger, a German chemist with experience in studying natural compounds such as rubber and cellulose. In contrast to the prevailing rationalization of these substances as aggregates of small molecules, Staudinger proposed they were made up of macromolecules composed of 10,000 or more atoms. Recognition that polymeric macromolecules make up many important natural materials was followed by the creation of synthetic analogs having a variety of properties. 2.

The repeating structural unit of most simple polymers not only reflects the monomer(s) from which the polymers are constructed, but also provides a concise means for drawing structures to represent these macromolecules. If Y and Z represent moles of monomer and polymer respectively, Z is approximately 10-5 Y.

Le nuove frontiere applicative delle bioplastiche - Chimicare. Gabriella Butera e Filippo Luzzu Negli ultimi decenni si sono raggiunti traguardi importanti nell’utilizzo di materiali biodegradabili nei più svariati campi di applicazione: dalla realizzazione di piatti e stoviglie monouso a prodotti altamente ingegnerizzati che trovano utilizzo nelle attività di ripristino e risanamento ambientale.

Le nuove frontiere applicative delle bioplastiche - Chimicare

Ad oggi le sostanze plastiche non biodegradabili più comuni derivano dal petrolio o da processi di sintesi. I prodotti, sviluppati principalmente nel secolo scorso hanno trovato un grandissimo impiego nei più diversi campi applicativi, sostituendo con successo i materiali convenzionali fino ad allora usati. Tali sostanze presentano proprietà quali la leggerezza, la flessibilità, l’elasticità, la facilità di lavorazione, la viscosità allo stato fuso o in soluzione e in generale un basso costo di produzione.

How to Make Vegetable Glycerin. Il Mio Sapone > Fare il Sapone a Freddo.

Il metodo a freddo è il sistema più semplice e immediato per preparare il sapone. In questa tecnica si sfrutta il calore naturale, prodotto dalla reazione tra la soda caustica e i grassi, per portare a termine la saponificazione. Questo calore va dunque controllato e soprattutto mantenuto il più a lungo possibile perchè possa svolgere il suo compito.Per ottenere un buon sapone a freddo è necessario: 1.Pesare con assoluta precisione gli ingredienti; anche la minima differenza può rovinare tutto; 2.Miscelare grassi e soluzione caustica alla temperatura ottimale; 3.Isolare gli stampi nelle prime 24 ore perchè il calore della reazione chimica non si disperda.

Ingredienti fondamentali: Come fare la glicerina in casa - Fai da Te Mania. Leggi Sicuramente tutti avrete sentito parlare della glicerina, un composto liquido vischioso impiegato in vari settori dell'industria cosmetica. La possiamo trovare nelle creme idratanti, oli e saponi. A differenza di quello che si può pensare, la glicerina esercita un'azione molto delicata sulla pelle rendendola così adatta alle pelli più sensibili.

Experiment home Objective The objective of the “Bioplastics Experiment” is to show the students the advantages and disadvantages of running a fractional factorial. The students run a 2^k-1 fractional factorial to determine which levels of bioplastic ingredients / cooking method produce the best quality bioplastic. The students break up into four groups. Each group selects a different bioplastic; Milk plastic, Stovetop corn plastic, Microwave corn plastic and Flubber. Make Cornstarch Plastic. Experiment 2 Materials: 7 tablespoons of water 1 tablespoon of starch 2.5 teaspoon of vinegar 1.5 teaspoon of glycerin .5 teaspoon of baking soda.
