Messina researchers develop high-strength lightweight cement mix for concrete 3D printing

Researchers from the University of Messina have formulated a lightweight foamed concrete to more effectively 3D print building structures without the need for any formwork. Unlike traditional lightweight foamed concrete, the novel material (3DPC) is able to retain its shape in its ‘molten’ or ‘fresh’ state due to a very high viscosity. Upon extensive testing, […]
