Mixtures, compositions

Are the mixtures used dry?

Printers manufactured by "AMT" are printed with standard sand concrete, which is available for free sale in any construction market. Gypsum, mixtures with mineral additives and fiber can be used (they are also mass-produced, all the necessary documents are available). The operating instructions have technological regulations for the mixture, according to which it will not be difficult to prepare the necessary concrete for printing.

When buying equipment, we teach you how to prepare working mixtures. Another option: to purchase ready-made mixtures for 3D printing from us.

How much does 1 m3 of the finished mixture with the necessary additives cost?

The printer can print with standard sand concrete, which is freely available on any construction market, depending on the region, in an economical version, the finished mixture is comparable in cost to conventional concrete.

Is it possible to print without additional reinforcement, for example, with fiber. That is, are you interested in what has already been used, for example, in Denmark?

Printers manufactured by AMT can print with standard sand concrete based on cement of the 400-500 series (most do so). You can add plasticizers, which are on sale in your region. The addition of polyester and glass fiber gives a slight increase in strength and provides crack resistance of long parts. That's exactly what the Danes did, catching up with the compressive strength to 350 units. 

Is the composition of the mixture for construction using a 3D printer always constant? Is it possible to find out its physico-chemical characteristics (meaning after solidification)?

The printer prints with any sand concrete. If you use the M300 mixture, then the characteristics will be declared accordingly.

The cost of the mixtures you presented?

Construction printers "AMT" are printed with standard sand concrete based on cement of the 400-500 series, the ones that are available for free sale.

Will a simple concrete solution go for this printer?

Yes, the printer prints with standard compositions based on cement 400 - 500 series cement, the kind that can be bought in almost any hardware store. The fraction of non-metallic materials should be no more than 2.5 mm (sand concrete).
