Strategic Partnership Agreement Leads to Nanodiamond-Enhanced 3D Printing Filaments

Strategic Partnership Agreement Leads to Nanodiamond-Enhanced 3D Printing Filaments

Nanomaterials, according to the National Institutes of Health, are characterized by their very small size, which is measured in nanometers, naturally; one nanometer is about 100,000 times smaller than the diameter of a single human hair, so that’s pretty small. Nano-sized particles do exist in nature, but can also be created from different products, like carbon, graphene, […]
