Biocompatible: Living tissue and bone will absorb and adhere to PAPC.
Non Toxic: PAPC is non bioresorbable and does not dissolve inside the body or leech harmful compounds into the bloodstream.
Radiopaque: Visible to X-Ray and MRI imaging
Desktop FDM Compatible: PAPC II rivals PEEK in strength to weight ratio but prints at 230℃ making it compatible with most desktop FDM printers.
Using PAPC 3D Models for Orthotics: FibreTuff PAPC provides superior anatomical bone models with Radiopacity for femurs, calcaneus, talus, metatarsal, skull cap, mandible, sacrum, etc.
Pre-surgical simulation, assessment, training & planning.
Practice drilling through bones using models 3d printed to match patient specific anatomy.
Practice putting implants in place, including exactly where and how deep to drill or cut bone with the proper insertion angle.
Improved surgical outcomes for patients.
Reduced operation times.
Increased effectiveness of medical/surgical education and training.
Ability to drill, saw, screw, machine, and laser cut.
Anatomical accuracy of model in respect to patient.
Realistic mechanical properties for cortical and inner bone.
