These approvals will be used in various medical markets to include prosthetic and orthopedic applications.

FibreTuff PAPC compounds for CNC machining, Injection and Extrusion

The medical industry is especially fond of  PAPC compounds because different processes can used like 3D Printing, Injection molding and Extrusion. These PAPC compounds have been micro molded successfully where other natural fiber thermoplastic compositions have failed due to high shear sensitivity and process temperature >210C. Secondary processes like machining, metal plating and compression molding have been qualified with PAPC.
