3D printing technology changes armor properties

Scientists have used 3D printing technology to print a new type of synthetic polymer armor inspired by the rings of the Marine mollusk chiton.

3D printing technology

Normally, armor is the protective equipment worn by soldiers in ancient times.But in modern society practice, a lot of high-risk areas still need similar to this kind of safety degree is higher protective gear.Biology has always been a source of inspiration for armor design, but flexibility has always been a major issue in armor development.

This time, ling li, a researcher at Virginia tech university in the United States, and colleagues analyzed how chitons could evolve self-protection mechanisms while maintaining a certain level of activity.The team used a number of techniques to study the structure and function of mineralized scales in different chiting species, then designed and printed a synthetic polymer armor using 3D printing technology to further analyze the structure and function of these scales.

In the experiment, the team also demonstrated that the 3D printing technology’s flexible armor can act as knee pads to protect the body from being scratched by broken glass.

The researchers said that while the armor they are currently developing is made of plastic, the potential of different materials for 3D printing technology means that the design principles proposed in the study could be applied to other functional prototypes.
