Abstract

Spherical thermoplastic polymer powders useful for additive manufacturing may be made at high throughputs by a method comprising polymer in a dispersing medium at a temperature above the polymer melting temperature (Tm) under shear for short times (e.g., less than 30 minutes) to form a mixture that is then rapid (faster than ambient cooling) cooled below Tm. The method is particularly useful for thermoplastic polymers having a high melt flow index (MFI) or low capillary viscosity at high shear (~1000 s-1) within 20 or 30 °C of the polymer's melt temperature. The method may also include a crystallizing temperature below Tm and above the glass transition temperature Tg of the polymer to crystallize amorphous polymers or increase the crystallinity of semi-crystalline polymers.

The semi-crystalline blended polymer displays a DSC melt peak enthalpy of at least about 3 joules/g. The semi-crystalline polymer may be made by blending the aforementioned polymers at the weight ratio and subject to heating between the melt temperature of the semi-crystalline polymer and the glass transition temperature of the amorphous polymer. The semi-crystalline blended polymer may revert to essentially an amorphous polymer when additive manufactured by fusing layers of said polymer powders together.

Abstract

A semicrystalline polyarylethersulfone (PAES) useful for additive manufacturing may be made by a method comprising: dissolving an amorphous polyarylethersulfone in a polar aprotic halogenated hydrocarbon solvent at a temperature adequate to effectively form a solution, and subsequently and spontaneously bring about reprecipitation of a semicrystalline polyarylethersulfone from the solution. The semicrystalline polyarylethersulfone may have a crystallinity of at least 30% by weight. The semicrystalline PAES, upon being heated, melting and uniting together in layers during additive manufacturing cools without substantially recrystallizing, allows for deformation-free articles to be formed having low residual stress.

Abstract

Ways of preparing a partially crystalline polycarbonate powder are provided that include dissolving an amorphous polycarbonate in a polar aprotic solvent to form a first solution of solubilized polycarbonate at a first temperature. The first solution is then cooled to a second temperature, the second temperature being lower than the first temperature, where a portion of the solubilized polycarbonate precipitates from the first solution to form a second solution including the partially crystalline polycarbonate powder. Certain partially crystalline polycarbonate powders resulting from such methods are particularly useful in additive manufacturing processes, including powder bed fusion processes.

Abstract

Copolymers of condensation polymers are formed by a method of cleaving and reacting with a chain extender to form an end capped cleaved condensation polymer that is further reacted with a second compound that may be comprised of a further chain extender and condensation polymer that react with a reactive group still remaining in the chain extender capping the cleaved condensation polymer. The method allows the formation of block copolymers, branched copolymers and star polymers of differing condensation polymers bonded through the residue of a chain extender.
