Flexible biocompatible Formlabs BioMed Flex 80A Resin
BioMed Flex 80A is a new elastomeric resin from Formlabs. It is a firm and flexible medical grade material for 3D printing transparent products that meet the requirements of durability and biocompatibility.
BioMed Flex 80A Resin combines the flexibility and convenience you’ve come to appreciate in Flexible 80A Resin with the biocompatibility certifications you need.
The material is ISO 10993 and USP Class VI certified and manufactured in an FDA registered ISO 13485 facility. Therefore, it can be safely used for long-term skin contact (up to 30 days) and short-term mucosal contact (up to 24 hours).
Why choose BioMed Flex 80A?
3D printing is a more efficient way to produce medical devices than traditional methods such as casting. This is a faster way of turning an idea into a finished product with greater freedom in choosing a form. BioMed Flex 80A is flexible and biocompatible, making it ideal for the production of medical devices that require these properties: flexible biocompatible medical devices and anatomical models.
Flexible resin for 3D printing properties
The flexible material adapts to the movement of the body – ideal for the production of medical devices, solid tissue models that require short-term contact with the mucous membrane. Optimization of the application of mass personalization compared to the use of bulky forms.
Transparent. Produce complex transparent solid tissue models and deliver them directly to the operating room as a reference for complex medical procedures (eg sizing models, cartilage models or diseased organs).
Medical material, biocompatible parts. The material is manufactured in strict compliance with ISO 13485. Long-term skin contact up to 30 days and short-term contact with human mucous membranes up to 24 hours.
