3D Printing Complements Fluoropolymer Processing

3D Printing complements fluoropolymer processing.3M has developed a patent-pending technology to 3D print fully fluorinated polymers.This technology allows 3Dprinting as an additional and differentiated way of processing fully-fluorinated polymers. In this way the fabrication of complex structures is possible, which otherwise cannot be produced or only produced with expensive traditional processing techniques.3M is pioneering 3D printing with PTFE.
