3D Cer-Paste ZRP

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 ZRP can be sintered in air up to temperatures of 1500 C without warping or cracking. The resulting ceramic possesses low density, high resistance to corrosion and excellent thermal shock resistance. End uses that require insulation for fast heating and cooling would be ideal for ceramic parts printed with 3D Cer-Paste ZRP.
