Beijing researchers develop antibacterial filament for low-temperature FDM

Researchers from the Beijing University of Chemical Technology have developed a starch-infused polycaprolactone (PCL)-based composite filament for use with low-temperature FDM machines. The filament was then further functionalized via the addition of bioactive ingredients, giving it antibacterial properties. Here’s how they did it: PCL-starch composite filament PCL is known for its low melting (60°C) and […]
