Binder jetting is a 3D printing process in which materials, such as quartz sand or ceramics, are bonded in layers by a binder. In the production process, the printer applies a thin layer of sand, which is bonded with a liquid - a binder - before another layer of sand is applied. In this way, layer by layer, the desired component is created. After build the construction is hardened and cooled.
The process is less common than other technologies. At Jellypipe, quartz sand is currently available as a material in the binder jetting process.
The finished product made of quartz sand can be used in its untreated state for metal moulds or for design objects used indoors. A transparent coating makes the objects water-repellent. Coloured coatings (spray painting) in various colours are also available on request.
