FibreTuff PAPC® is an advanced biomaterial compound for 3D Printing. The FibreTuff PAPC has anisotropic behavior which has greater strength in one direction. The FibreTuff PAPC has a surface texture, as well as appearance similar to bone.
FibreTuff PAPC is less expensive thermoplastic composition made with cellulose versus the other highly engineered resins for 3D Printer filament . Savings can be in excess of 30 to 40% with improved performance.
FibreTuff PAPC I can be processed by many 3D Printers Manufacturers having an open platform. These 3D Printer manufactures can process FibreTuff PAPC using standard process conditions. Contact us for a list of 3D Printer manufacturers
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 - PVA water soluble breakaway, a glue stick or adhesive sheet is required.
Magigoo is a preferred adhesive https://magigoo.com
FibreTuff PAPC biomaterials can produce skull caps for functional models by medical centers and physicians. FibreTuff PAPC II was processed to make these skull caps.
FibreTuff Medical Biopolymers is producing PAPC compounds for capacitive touch applications.See nScrypt Utilizes FibreTuff's PEEK Alternative PAPC 3D Printing Filaments
FibreTuff PAPC requires a heated build plate. Utilizing EZ-STIK GeckoTek build plate with 225C nozzle temperature and heated bed at 95C with PAPC II is preferred. https://www.geckotek.co/collections/build-plates/products/ez-stik-hot-build-plate
Cube Glue from 3D Systems is a good choice for increasing bed adhesion with FibreTuff PAPC.
