Our customised metal binder slurries for additive manufacturing of technical metals are “ready to use” resin or binders for making metal slurries with very high volume concentrations of micron and submicron metals, such as stainless steel, titanium, Wo-Mo, Co-Cr, etc.

They have been designed for Metal Indirect Production MIP via injection molding in durable or sacrificial molds or alternative direct printing systems such as jetting.

Types:

  • Metal Slurry MS Stainless Steel 316L
  • Metal Slurry MS Titanium
  • Metal Slurry MS Wolfram(Tungsten) Molybdenum W-Mo alloys
  • Metal Slurry MS Cobalt Chrome Co Cr alloys

Metal Binder Slurries with these features and benefits can be injected in 3D printed molds  made with our durable and/or sacrifical 3D resins or by direct printing systems, such as jetting at high temperature:

  • excellent dispersion and injection flow of micron and submicron metals with additions up to 65% volumen concentrations
  • very high resolution by direct printing by jetting or by injection at high temperature  in durable or sacrificial injection molds
  • high quality 
  • controlled and reproducible process shrinkage
  • minimum expansion coefficient and wide temperature interval of debinding to prevent micro-fractures
  • very high resolution of 20 microns of final products
  • controlled shrinkage
