FibreTuff PAPC for CNC Machining Spinal Implant


FibreTuff PAPC drop in replacement for CNC Machining orthopaedic implants with PEEK

An orthopaedic spinal implant for proof of concept made from 3D Printing FibreTuff PAPC and utilizing CNC Machining process, showing no visible degradation of the cellulose fibers in the spinal implants. The FibreTuff PAPC has a unique surface texture to accept novel hydroxyapatite coatings. Furthermore, the FibreTuff PAPC has radiopacity and does not require barium sulfate or tantalum beads for locating implant in body.
