  • Additive manufacturing (AM) or 3D printing of elastomers remains challenging due to their inherent mechanical and thermal properties. The types of elastomers that have been explored for 3D printing are still limited; the majority of the studies are focused on silicone or polyurethane elastomers. To overcome those limitations and bring new functionalities in AM of elastomers, it is critical to explore new types of elastomers with unique properties for 3D printing. In this talk, I will present our recent work on the molecular engineering and extrusion-based 3D printing of polyisobutylene (PIB) elastomers and their hybrid materials.
