Winsun Yingchuang Building Techniques (Shanghai) Co. Ltd is working closely with the Chinese Shanghai Academy of Building Research (SRIBS) on standardization of construction 3D printing materials (Ink) and 3D product standards. Professor-level Senior Engineer Ms. Ye Beihong of SRIBS presented the technical results of the research conducted on the additive manufacturing (3D printing) materials (Ink) and other 3D products produced by Winsun (Yingchuang Building Techniques) in Shanghai.

Winsun currently holds about 225 patents relating to 3D materials and manufacturing. The company attracted global attention in 2014 when it 3D printed 10 full-sized houses in Shanghai Qingpu Science Park and has since then worked on standardization according to local and international standards.

Searching for standardization of construction 3D printing

Ms. Ye Beihong mentioned that there were already standards created for the ink, as well as for printed wall structures. The results show that the 3D printing materials from Winsun can achieve the highest strength of C60. In addition to strength, Beihong also studied the bending resistance and anti-freezing properties of the insulation system for 3D printed exterior walls. “We think that Winsun’s products have the required strength,” she stated.

The stakeholders are following the research closely and provide additional data where needed. Due to the expertise of SRIBS with establishing standards for the industry, and the experience gained by the projects developed over the last years, they are planning to further move forward to work out national and international standards for 3D construction.

Mr. Joseph Faluyi, President and CEO of Winsun 3D Builders Africa, commented: “From the report, it clearly shows that the future of our cities is safer with 3D construction. Setting standards such as these will create technical enforcement for other players in the 3D construction printing industry to follow and ensure consistency in the quality of the structures”. Based in Lagos, Nigeria, Winsun 3D Builders Africa is leveraging Winsun technology to on-demand 3D print structures in the local markets.
