These FibreTuff PAPC compounds are made with cellulose to produce filaments for 3D Printing in development of lower cost devices and eventually implants. Benefits in using FibreTuff PAPC compounds include no offensive odors at recommended processing temperatures, lowering material purchasing costs, reducing the cost in processing with minimal drying time, utilize standard sterilization methods - Autoclave and Gamma. 

FibreTuff PAPC compounds for 3D Printing, CNC machining, Injection and Extrusion

FibreTuff sells PAPC compounds and filaments for 3D Printing, Injection molding and Extrusion. These PAPC compounds have been 3D Printed successfully where other natural fiber thermoplastic compositions have failed due to high shear sensitivity and process temperature >220C. Secondary processes like machining, metal plating and compression molding have been qualified with PAPC.
