Thermoplastic Composites for Additive Manufacturing


Adhesion between a matrix and a filler is the key parameter to obtain good and suitable mechanical properties of composites. Mechanical anchoring, the predominant adhesion type at composites produced by the injection moulding fails for 3D printing because no pressure is present. Thus proper surface modification of the neat polymer and filler powder is neces-sary for production of high quality composite tools by the 3D-printing. Our experimental re-sults proved that plasma treated PE powder evidences significant enhancement of adhesion to various types of materials including glass fibers. Composites samples prepared from the treated material reached significant tensile strength enhancement in comparison with the chemically treated material. Perspectives for composite materials for 3D printing technolo-gy is also discussed.
