FibreTuff PAPC® is an advanced biomaterial compound for 3D printers in Class I, II and eventually Class III for the Medical Industry. Specifically, FibreTuff PAPC biomaterials can be 3D Printed in a FDM or SLS process. The FibreTuff PAPC has radiopaque qualities, can be coated with Hydroxyapatite and exhibits anisotropic behavior which has greater strength in one direction.
The Universities, medical centers and physicians can see an improved training experience by 3D Printing FibreTuff PAPC as a bone replacement. FibreTuff PAPC has similar qualities to bone.i.e. appearance, radiopacity, sawing and cutting ability with screw retention.
FibreTuff PAPC II can be processed by many 3D Printers having an open platform. Some processing parameters are being selected for PAPC II with 3D Printer manufacturers.
We have 3D printed FibreTuff PAPC with the following FDM printer maufacturers
All FibreTuff PAPC biomaterials for FDM require a heated bed. The heated bed temperatures recommended for the FibreTuff PAPC can range from 80 C to 110 C. To adhere the FibreTuff PAPC to the heated bed a glue stick or adhesive sheet is required. Cube Glue is recommended for use with FibreTuff PAPC. GeckoTek is a supplier of adhesive sheet for the heated bed. The recommended sheet for PAPC is EZ - Stik Hot Build Plate.
