Biocompatible Polymers

Depending on the way in which additively manufactured parts interact with the human body, they need to meet certain requirements. The high temperature and chemical resistance of some of our materials make them ideal for a great variety of applications and devices requiring biocompatibility. The materials are tested for cytotoxicity, sensitization, irritation, and acute systemic toxicity. To clarify if your biocompatibility requirements are met, talk to us.

Naturally, our SLS and FDR technology only require polymer material and laser power for production. The waiving of agents or binders in the production process reduces risks right from the start. Considering customer-specific influence (e.g. additives, manufacturing process), please be aware that the biocompatibility of a material does not allow any direct conclusion to be drawn about the biocompatibility of the produced part.
