3D Cer-Paste SC

Based on nearly 40 years of experience formulating exceptional high temperature ceramic coatings, ZYP Coatings is proud to present its first line of ready-to-use ceramic pastes formulated for 3D printing. Prior to a commercial launch, the pastes were tested and implemented for 3D printing projects within the Materials Science and Technology Division at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. The solvent-based pastes can be used in extrusion-based Paste Deposition Modeling (PDM) 3D printers, similar to desktop Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) printers used for polymers, except no heat is required. Once dry, parts printed with 3D Cer-Paste SC can be sintered in a standard fashion without warping or cracking. Depending on the sintering conditions, the resulting ceramic can possess low porosity, high resistance to corrosion and excellent wear resistance.
