Evonik has expanded its range of RESOMER PrintPowder polymers to support 3D printing of personalized implantable medical devices and selective laser sintering (SLS).
“We are proud that these new powders will allow manufacturers to create personalized devices with complex internal designs that match a patient’s anatomy. This will open up new treatment options for patients,” stated Thomas Riermeier, head of Evonik’s Health Care business line, in a news release.
The new polymer print powders build on the success of the first-generation free-flowing RESOMER PrintPowder C 212 F, which is based on polycaprolactone and offers tight specifications and an optimized particle size distribution for SLS. The new range of polymers, available for sampling and customer evaluation, adds polylactide or polydioxanone-based polymers into the portfolio for SLS printing.
