Measurement of sintering characteristics of clay-reinforced polyamide 6 nanocomposite Conference Paper uri icon


  • Sintering characteristics of clay nanoparticle/polyamide 6 composite were studied for applications in Rapid Prototyping and Manufacturing. Sintered nanocomposite powders showed lower final density than the standard polymer due to increased resistance to low shear rate deformation. Because of this flow resistance, rapid prototyping processing parameters such as part-bed temperature and laser power must be adjusted.
