Scientists Develop New High-Strength, Seaweed-Based Hydrogel for 3D Printing

A team of researchers from North Carolina State University have developed a new class of high-performance, seaweed-based hydrogels for 3D printing.

Dubbed the self-reinforced homocomposite hydrogel (HHG), the extrudable material is created by integrating different sized networks of identical alginates together. The result is a hydrogel reinforced with itself, except now its mechanical properties have been enhanced with greater strength and flexibility.
