Purpose: Create 25 g cast of TiO2 10% and mix 5% filament in Dr. Fox's extruder
Safety and Procedure: Normal large casting, see 6/18/14, but with 250 mL of acetone instead of 200.
Created a 25 g TiO2 cast
Mass % Mass TiO2 Mass ABS 10.0% 2.5016 g 22.4976 g
Added 250 mL acetone to TiO2. Sonicated from 7:15 am to 7:20 am at 21°C to 22°C. Added ABS and sonicated from 7:20 am at 22°C to 5:05 pm at 38°C. Heated the pan at 80°C from 4:05 pm to 6:07 pm.
The cast is smoother than 9/24 cast. No ABS chunks but several air bubbles. No severe aggregation is seen but the ABS appears "marbled" as it isn't a monotone color. However, it appears that the slight inconsistency will be resolved by Dr. Fox's extruder.
Figure 1: No chunks or abnormal air bubbles.
