3D Printing Engineering Thermoplastics (3D PET) is a new UMass Lowell initiative that seeks to drive development of high performance engineering thermoplastics and composites in 3D printing.
At this time, little is known about the potential toxicity of nanoparticles, especially engineered nanoparticles. We must take a precautionary approach to working with nanoparticles. The importance of this research is that the engineered nanoparticles studied here are materials in a new category where exposure data are not available and the toxicological information is limited. Our research is focused on:
