Hi All!

I am a part of a project team at my university and we are looking into using 3d printing to design battery containers. In the past we have always machined a thick acrylic however our current project a detailed container to be built several times over and it isn't practical to make it by hand. So we've turned to 3d printing as a viable option. However, our main concern is the possibility of disintegration of the material in the presence of our chemicals.

We are working with a concentrated solution of Potassium Hydroxide (KOH), Activated Carbon, and aluminum. We need the box to be rigid, and non-reactive. Does anyone know what type of material we should pursue for this use or if it is possible at all?

Thank you!
