German chemical group WACKER and its 3D printing division ACEO have unveiled electrically conductive silicone rubber materials for 3D printing applications. The materials, announced at Formnext 2018 , were developed to the meet the market need for electrically conductive elastomers with high-temperature resistance. While silicones are widely used across a range of industries and applications (such as actuators, sensors, generators and printed electronics), they have still been relatively limited within the context of additive manufacturing. WACKER’s ACEO team has been at the forefront of 3D printable silicone development, as the company even announced it would be opening the first silicone rubber 3D printing facility this year. Being able to 3D print silicone rubber for the aforementioned applications could offer a number of advantages, including manufacturing devices in a single process and creating electronics with complex structures and geometries. ACEO’s new electrically conductive silicone rubber could open up these possibilities […]
