(3DPrintingIndustry)  Australia has awarded five research institutions $2 million USD ($2.6 million AUD) to develop additive manufacturing technology for “energetic materials”. These materials are cover a body of polymers that can be used as explosives, or solid rocket fuel.
According Professor David Lewis, a polymer specialist and Director of Flinders Centre for NanoScale Science and Technology, “The ability to develop systems like this is the next generation of additive manufacturing and is the key to this technology becoming main stream.”
