September 12, 2018, Silicon Valley-based digital manufacturing Company Carbon announced the launch of its first medical grade resin 3D printing material: medical polyurethane (MPU 100). It is reported that MPU 100 and carbon rigid polyurethane material similar, it is a medical grade two-component resin, can use digital light synthesis production of isotropic rigid plastic. It is designed for medical systems, skin contact devices, drug contact devices and disposable medical device application components.
The main functions of MPU 100 include:
Engineered grade material with excellent abrasion resistance
Tested to comply with USP VI and ISO 10993-5 and-10 biocompatibility
Compatible with ethylene oxide, electron beam and gamma sterilization methods
Maintains biocompatibility after sterilization
Compatible with common disinfectants
can provide analysis certificate
FDA-supplied Master file ' Carbon new MPU 100 resin material mechanical properties, biocompatibility, sterilization compatibility and chemical resistance provide new features for medical device manufacturers to produce safe and reliable end-use products for patients. ' Carbon Vice president Jason Rolland said. ' 3D printing has great potential in the life sciences and medical devices industry, and we will continue to develop next-generation materials.
Currently, MPU 100 materials provide 800ML cartridges only to carbon customers in the United States, Canada and Europe. Carbon launches medical grade polyurethane 3D printing Material MPU 100
