Invited Lecture

Additive Manufacturing with Geopolymers

Thursday (25.10.2018)
14:00 - 14:30
Part of:


Ceramic structures for various applications were fabricated by additive manufacturing using stereolithography Direct Ink Writing (DIW). Metakaolin-based geopolymer printable inks were obtained by controlling the composition, rheology and additives in the formulation as well as taking advantage of the time during which the viscosity of the system was rather constant. Different fillers (powder or fiber) were added to further modify the properties of the produced samples.

High-porosity components were produced for potential use as water purification filters.
