3D Printed parts made with FibreTuff PAPC filaments

3D Print filament made with FibreTuff PAPC

FibreTuff PAPC is 30% less expensive to 3D Print versus PEEK and Titanium.

  • FibreTuff PAPC is a less expensive thermoplastic composition made with cellulose versus the other highly engineered resins for 3D Printer filament .
  • PAPC can be 3D Printed at much lower temperatures than PEEK. Consequently, a lower cost for purchasing a 3D Printer. 
  • FibreTuff PAPC is Radiopaque, not requiring the tantalum beads like PEEK for locating implant in body.i.e. spinal spacer.
  • The FibreTuff PAPC can be machined with the same feeds and speeds as PEEK. 
  • You can conformal print circuits onto the PAPC using nScrypt technology.
  • FibreTuff PAPC is coating friendly, requiring less / no surface preparation.

FibreTuff PAPC filaments are 3D printer agnostic

Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) 3D Printing FibreTuff PAPC for medical devices and bone replacement

FibreTuff PAPC® is an advanced material technology for 3D printing Class I, II and eventually implantable to include Class III for the Medical Industry. The Universities, medical centers and physicians can see an improved training experience by 3D Printing FibreTuff PAPC as a bone replacement.

Lower specific gravity can translate into less material used for device. These PAPC compounds have a low specific gravity and water absorption < .24% based on the ASTM D570-10 test. 

The melt flow rate is approx. 20 grams per 10 min. per ASTM D1238-13. 

FibreTuff PAPC is anisotropic which can be 3D printed in one direction with greater strength.

FibreTuff Medical Biopolymers formulates to compound PAPC, so that, 3D Printing in a FDM process at recommended temperatures has no offensive odors. 

Cervical Spacer machined with FibreTuff PAPC

FibreTuff PAPC is being machined into small parts that have challenges in 3D printing at competitive costs. Contact robert@fibretuff.us for more information.

FibreTuff PAPC is Radiopaque

FibreTuff PAPC is a radiopaque composition that has absorbable qualities unlike PEEK for easier removal of temporary implants. PAPC doesn't heat up in an MRI like metals which is significant for external fixation device.
