3D Printing

3D printing has taken off in biomedical applications, and regulatory agencies such as the FDA are trying to keep up the pace by issuing relevant guidance documents. We have developed an extensive list of absorbable polymers including absorbable polyurethanes suitable for medical device additive manufacturing with highly tunable properties.


3D printing is an additive process of making a three-dimensional solid object from digital model. Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM), Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) and Stereolithography (SLA) are the three most common types of commercially used 3D printing technologies in context of biomedical applications. Most common absorbable polymers that are used for Fused Deposition Modeling include polycaprolactone (PCL), L-lactide/caprolactone copolymers, poly (lactide-co-glycolide), PDS (poly-p- dioxanone) and PLA polymers and copolymers. Most common absorbable polymers that are used in Stereolithography include Poly (DL-lactide), PLA-PEG or PLGA or Poly(p-dioxanone), PDS. Most common absorbable polymers/copolymers used for Selective Laser Sintering include PCL polymer and copolymers. Get in touch to discuss your additive manufacturing application.
