1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Join us Thursday, December 13 from 1-2 pm EST for a new TRX Webinar: Printing a New Class of Durable Materials presented by Dr. Cora Leibig of Chromatic 3D Materials.
Chromatic 3D Materials (“C3DM”) is commercializing a ground-breaking 3D printing capability that offers durable, robust thermoset plastics previously available only through expensive, time-consuming molding processes. The 3D printing process, termed Reactive Liquid Additive Manufacturing (RLAM) entails a novel liquid mixing chemistry that enables these high-performance thermosetting plastics to be cost-effectively designed and manufactured. The RLAM process offers customizable properties, multi-material designs, large formats, complex shapes, strength and durability for a broad set of product applications, including seals and gaskets, footwear, prosthetic and medical devices. This presentation will provide an overview of the process technology, material advantages, representative commercial projects and the C3DM’s path forward. C3DM looks forward to sharing our story with you.
Presenter: Dr. Cora Leibig
Dr. Cora Leibig is a 20-year new product development and chemical industry veteran. Prior to founding Chromatic 3D Materials, she spent eight years as VP of R&D and COO at Segetis, a clean-tech start-up that raised over $70M to develop and commercialize a bio-based chemical platform technology. In these roles, Dr. Leibig led the invention, development, and product launch of three novel chemical products; oversaw the development of a breakthrough process to produce a key bio-based chemical building block; and managed an intellectual property portfolio comprising more than 50 patent families and 250 global filings.
From 1997-2008, Dr. Leibig held several roles within The Dow Chemical Company, starting as a researcher within the Corporate R&D Materials Science organization, and progressing to Global Director of Thermosets Product Research. In her final role at Dow, Dr. Leibig built a research program to align research efforts to Dow’s growing urethanes formulation businesses. This experience was critical for developing her knowledge of the breadth of formulation techniques that can be applied to adapt the processing and final property performance of polyurethane systems.
Dr. Leibig completed her PhD in Chemical Engineering at UC Santa Barbara under a Hertz Fellowship in 1997, and completed her BS and MS in Chemical Engineering at MIT in 1993. Her research focused on multi-phasic polymer materials, polymer dynamics, and flow behavior. Dr. Leibig has an extensive global network of mentors and advisors.
