FEFU scientist wins silicone development grant
The Presidential grant for the development of photopolymer silicone was won by a young scientist at the Far Eastern Federal State University. It can be used for printing medical implants, contact lenses, in the automotive industry, in the sports industry.
According to the FEFU press service, the silicone printing technology is not well developed. It hardens poorly and it is difficult for him to give the necessary configuration. For this reason, until recently, all silicone parts were produced by casting and molding methods, which is not economically viable when it comes to large and complex parts.
Mikhail Tutov, a scientist at the FEFU School of Natural Sciences, has proposed the development of a new photopolymer silicone for 3D printing. It will include industrial silicone and special hardeners - photoactive materials that will bind silicone under ultraviolet radiation during printing. With the new material, you can quickly print any necessary part.
