Our company portfolio includes PAPC formulations that have FDA compliant ingredients to help produce biocompatible compounds.
PAPC ingredients are compounded into pellets to make filament / powders to replace highly engineered compounds. Benefits in using FibreTuff PAPC compounds include lowering material purchasing costs, reducing the cost in processing with minimal drying time, no offensive odors, utilize standard sterilization methods - Autoclave and Gamma.
The PAPC compounds can be molded in different processes 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.
The FibreTuff® technology includes Polyamide, Polyolefin and Cellulose (PAPC) described as a cellulose thermoplastic alloy, a single phase construction. The PAPC formulations for medical market have passed cytotoxicity and skin irritation studies performed by NAMSA. There are no offensive odors when molding PAPC formulations <240C. FibreTuff will continue to improve PAPC for the medical industry.
