FibreTuff can be 3D Printed in either Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) or Selective Laser Sintering (SLS).
Biological testing of FibreTuff has passed USP Class VI. Superior results with FibreTuff for new and innovative ENT medical devices.
Drop in replacement for CNC machining PEEK, PEKK and has performance qualities these resins do not have for medical applications.
FibreTuff compounds produce 3D Printing filament / powders to replace highly engineered medical compounds that are considerable more expensive and lack the necessary performance qualities. FibreTuff has bone like qualities such as look and feel with radiopacity, excellent screw retention, sawing and cutting,
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.
For purchasing FibreTuff, service centers to printed "bone like" models and distribution to support your projects. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org , 3DXTECH or 3D Printlife. Or look under Where to buy FibreTuff tab.
3D Printing of FibreTuff I medical grade filament with 3.0 x 15 mm screw inserted into calcaneus anatomical bone model
FibreTuff filaments used to produce bone models that have the appearance, texture, feel and construction of human and animal bone.
FibreTuff filament when processed at the preferred temperature has no offensive odors unlike some competitive filaments that have bad actors or additives such as maleic anhydride, styrene, etc
The FibreTuff® technology includes USPTO trademark, patent pending applications and patented compositions . The 3D Printing technology can provide some unique qualities and attributes for industries - medical, aerospace, automotive, building and construction, cosmetics.
