a.saji, good point: the plastics have to function and survive in the body but they must also not harm the body's functions and survival.

I agree, Chuck, it will be interesting to see what new developments there are in plastics for this extremely difficult environment.

@Murray: Yes indeed and you cannot make mistakes or do any trial runs inside the human body. No errors basically.

Looks like it will turn out to be a great event.  I especially would like to see the new developments and applications for medical technology.

Ann, I'll be curious to see the Medtronic presentation on stronger polymers in cardiac rhythm products. The inside of the human body can be a pretty caustic environment.

In this slideshow's latest crop of new bio-based and renewable plastics and methods for making them, some materials can even be completely recycled several times without loss of original properties.
It's probably too late to buy one, but some lucky people will soon be the owners of only 50 electric motorcycles made entirely with 3D printing from a super-lightweight aluminum alloy.
Oak Ridge National Laboratory has developed a surface preparation method to improve joining carbon composites with aluminum, with potentially far-reaching ramifications for high-volume industrial applications.
Our latest crop includes ABS alternatives, tougher PLAs, flexible plastics including a flexible nylon, polymers with better heat resistance, and the first biocompatible resin for desktop 3D printing.
New and improved fastening methods are helping engineers join plastics, composites, and thinner metal sheets in a variety of product assemblies.
