FibreTuff Offering New Eco-friendly Coating for Superior SLS Printed Phantom

        FibreTuff Printing
Eco-friendly SLS-printed vertebrae, made with FibreTuff

FibreTuff produces biomaterial compositions that are 3D-printed by various methods to replace cadaver work for universities and medical centers. These compositions possess a “bone-like” look and feel with radiopacity, excellent screw retention and cutting ability. The compositions can be sterilized by autoclave and have non-degradable ingredients with osteoconductive qualities.

Developed in response to a customer request, FibreTuff now offers material with an eco-friendly coating comprising a non-toxic barium solution. It is highly suitable for SLS-printed bone phantom, and could also be applied to FDM printing.

FibreTuff plans to develop more biocompatible compounds to be used with 3D printed Class I, Class II and Class III devices, and is amenable to visibility under x-ray and CT scans.
