Innovators at NASA Glenn Research Center, in collaboration with the University of Louisville and the U.S. Air Force, developed an additive manufacturing technique to produce composite parts with high-temperature capabilities using thermoset polyimide resins. The process uses selective laser sintering (SLS) to melt-process a powdered version of NASA’s novel RTM370 imide resin filled with finely milled carbon fibers.
