Caprolactisse 100, our new medical-grade filament

Our new filament, Caprolactisse 100, a medical-grade polymer. Caprolactisse, derived from caprolactone, is a white, flexible, semi-crystalline thermoplastic designed for slow degradation of over 36 months once implanted.

Key features:

  • Bioresorbable & Biocompatible: Caprolactisse 100 combines biodegradability and biocompatibility, making it the ideal choice for a wide range of medical applications.
  • Implantable: With its slow degradation rate, it’s optimal for scaffolds, and much more.
  • FDM technology: Using filament deposition modeling, Caprolactisse 100 guarantees accurate and reliable 3D printing.
  • Diameters & Colors: Available in two diameters, 1.75 mm and 2.85 mm, white

Its 3D printing parameters :

  • Printing temperature: Between 160°C and 200°C
  • Plate Temperature: Maintained between 40°C and 45°C
  • Print Speed: Optimal between 20 and 60 mm/s
  • Cooling Fan Speed: At 100%.Nos indications d’utilisation :

For optimum print quality, we recommend drying the product in an oven for 48 hours at 40°C. As PCL has difficulty solidifying at room temperature, slow printing allows the first layers to crystallize before adding new layers. In addition, give preference to printing small-volume parts.
