Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

It is our pleasure to call for papers in this Special Issue of “Additive Manufacturing Technology of Polymeric Nanomaterials”. Additive manufacturing (AM) or 3D printing is a kind of rapid prototyping technology and has been applied in various fields owing to its advantages of high manufacturing efficiency and low cost. Polymers were the first material applied in AM, and polymeric nanomaterials with a high strength-to-weight ratio and easy modification are still widely employed materials for AM. This Special Issue aims to provide an up-to-date works and reviews with potential topics including (but not limited to) the design of printing materials, the optimization of printing processes, post-processing, and the manufacturing of functional devices (e.g., sensors).

Acrylated natural rubber (ANR) with various acrylate contents (0.0–3.5 mol%) was prepared from natural rubber as a raw material and then incorporated with commercial 3D resin to fabricate specimens using digital light processing. As a result, the utilization of ANR with 1.5 mol% acrylate content could provide the maximum improvement in stretchability and impact strength, approximately 155% and 221%, respectively, over using pure 3D resin, without significant deterioration of tensile modulus and mechanical strength. According to evidence from a scanning electron microscope, this might be due to the partial interaction between the dispersed small rubber particles and the resin matrix. Additionally, the glass-transition temperature of the 3D-printed sample shifted to a lower temperature by introducing a higher acrylate content in the ANR. Therefore, this work might offer a practical way to effectively enhance the properties of the fundamental commercial 3D resin and broaden its applications. It also makes it possible to use natural rubber as a bio-based material in light-based 3D printing. Full article
