Salt

1 Aug ’12By adminMaterials

Salt for 3D printing uses salt harvested from the San Francisco Bay. The salt is harvested from 109-year-old salt crystallization ponds in Redwood City. These ponds are the final stop in a five-year salt-making process that involves moving bay water through a series of evaporation ponds. In these ponds the highly saline water completes evaporation, … Read More
