Hydrophobic and Hydrophilic Surfaces of 3D Printed Parts

Surface Characteristics

For wetting based applications, a surface is either hydrophobic (that means repels water, does not
encourage wetting) or hydrophilic (permits wetting or the physical bonding of water molecules) in
nature. Both effects may exists on certain surfaces often in a competitive manner.

Apium’s Material Extrusion 3D Printer; the P220, is capable of processing most engineering
and high performance polymeric materials. Most of these materials are used in
applications where unique properties are required from materials. For the first time we
show the wetting properties of these materials in the as-3D printed forms. Requirements of hydrophobic and hydrophilic surfaces can be fulfilled.
