Biocompatible polymer Biomed Black Resin
Biocompatible polymer Formlabs Biomed Black Resin is designed specifically to improve the quality of care. Modern tools are available for every medical institution in just a few hours – with 3D printing using Formlabs medical polymers.
Formlabs is constantly expanding its range of materials for its 3D printers. The Formabs family of biomedical resins is designed for a wide range of applications where performance and biocompatibility are critical. BioMed Resin materials are developed and manufactured at an ISO 13485 certified plant and are compatible with conventional disinfection and sterilization methods.
Additive production in medicine
BioMed Black Resin is a solid matte biocompatible photopolymer that is used in cases where expected a prolonged skin contact or short-term contact with the patient’s mucous membrane.
Models printed with BioMed Black Resin can be treated with conventional solvent disinfection and sterilization methods. BioMed Black Resin is manufactured by an ISO 13485 certified and USP Class VI certified company. Thus, the material is safe for use in pharmaceuticals and drug delivery.
Printing resolution: 100 microns, 50 microns.
Final polymerization is required.
Biomed Black Resin usage
Medical polymer Biomed Black Resin is a fast 3D printing of sterilizable and biocompatible objects:
- Medical devices and their components.
- Biocompatible molds.
- Clamping and fastening devices.
- The final models that involve contact with the skin.
- Consumer goods.
