Abstract

Polymer nano-composites (PNC) have emerged as new materials which can show significantly enhanced mechanical properties over other polymer based materials through the addition of relatively small amounts of nano-scale additives. Rapid prototyping is impacting biomedical in several important ways. This research aims to investigate the potential of using new polymer nano-composites (PNC) as a raw material for fused deposition modelling machine (FDM). Here, PNCs materials containing a polyamide (PA) and nano particles (<5wt%) will be synthesis by mechanical blending using twin extruder compounder to produce 0.85mm diameter of PNC. Dispersion analysis of the nano particles in the polymer matrix will be analyzed during the preparation and synthesis process. Futhermore, molecular binding and mixture structure will be investigated by using XPS analysis & Laser Raman Spectroscopy. Material will be characterized for their thermal properties using DSC and processed using FDM, the commercial rapid prototyping (RP) machine. The RP processing parameters will be established and used to produce test specimens to evaluate the mechanical properties of the PNC
