The use of Binder Jet AM is a growing market for many applications and is being used as a tool to overcome limitations with traditional manufacturing, as well as alternative additive methods. One such application is the development of high temperature ceramic heat exchangers, specifically designed as Triply Periodic Minimal Surface (TPMS) heat exchangers. This work aims to assess the mechanical properties and necessary printing parameters and processes for binder jet AM of several high temperature material systems, namely: Silicon Carbide, Silicon Nitride, and UHTC materials such as Zirconium Diboride. Work to-date will be discussed on the above systems and requirements necessary to achieve high-density sintered pieces with the ultimate goal of developing an enabling technology for cost-effective heat exchangers and other highly-engineered devices.
