FibreTuff compounds produce 3D Printing filament / powders to replace cadaver work. FibreTuff has bone like qualities such as look and feel with radiopacity, excellent screw retention, sawing and cutting ability,
3D Printed femur bone has radiopacity with look and feel of actual bone. Bone like features with biocompatibility can be achieved by 3D Printing FibreTuff versus other natural fiber thermoplastic compositions have failed due to toxicity, high shear sensitivity and burning when process temperature is greater >220C.
FibreTuff has passed USP Class VI testing performed by NAMSA for temporary implants. These FibreTuff compounds are made with cellulose to produce filaments for 3D Printing in development of lower cost devices and eventually implants. Benefits in using FibreTuff utilize standard sterilization methods - Autoclave and Gamma.
3D printed micropores with FibreTuff medical grade filament by nScrypt. The pores are symmetrical and consistent. This technology will promote a desired platform for cell and tissue growth.
FibreTuff has been tested in vitro to show conductive properties. These tests were preformed by University in Ohio.
FibreTuff has been used to replace cadaver bone saving $$ and providing an improved ROI for hospitals and medical centers.
