Abstract

In the PCT Applications having application numbers US2017/014156, US2017/014174 and US2017/014181, methods for making 3D-printed fluoropolymers, for example PTFE, are described. In the following there is provided a list of specific 3D-printed fluoropolymer articles that may be produced by these methods or that contain components of 3D printed fluoropolymers that may be obtained with these methods.

In the PCT Applications having application numbers US2017/014156, US2017/014174 and

US2017/014181, methods for making 3D-printed fluoropolymers, for example PTFE, are described. In

the following there is provided a list of specific 3D-printed fluoropolymer articles that may be produced

by these methods or that contain components of 3D printed fluoropolymers that may be obtained with

these methods:

Agitator blades; assay trays; bearings/bearing rings; bellows; blower vents; bodies of fluid flow

regulators; centrifuge tubes; clearing nozzles; diaphragms; desiccators; expansion joints; extinguishing

nozzles; fittings; flasks; frits; funnels; gas inlet or outlet tubes; gaskets; gear wheels; honeycomb

structures; lids/caps/stopper; lip seals; metering pistons with elastomer; micro reactors; mixers & static

mixers; mold inserts; nozzles; parts with channels/structures within surface; parts with integrated

cooling channels; parts with microstructures surface; piston rings; poppets, for instance for fluid flow

regulators; profiles; propellers; protecting caps, for instance for sensors; reduction/expansion adapters;

scraper; screw nuts; screws; seals; shaft seals; solid spherical balls for instance to prevent the bumping

in boiling, in non-return vacuum pump and valves; spray guns; spray nozzles; stirrer; stop cocks; valves;

vessels; vials, vial racks;

Fittings for piping (T’s elbow, reducers, spacers); linings for piping, for example linings for fittings, linings

for expansion joint...
