HEALTHCARE  RESINS

3D Printing Materials for Healthcare

 

Access a library of over 20 materials available on one powerful desktop 3D printer, the Form 3B. Our technology has been validated in FDA-cleared workflows and we develop and manufacture our own biocompatible materials in an ISO 13485 certified facility.

BioMed Clear

BioMed Clear Resin is a hard, strong material for biocompatible applications requiring long-term skin or mucosal membrane contact. This USP Class VI certified material is suitable for applications that require wear resistance and low water absorption over time. 

Parts printed with BioMed Clear Resin are compatible with common sterilization methods. BioMed Clear Resin is manufactured in our ISO 13485 facility and is supported with an FDA Device Master File. 

Consider BioMed Clear Resin for…

  • Medical device and device components
  • Jigs and fixtures
  • Surgical planning and implant sizing tools
  • Research and development

Supports print resolutions: 100 microns.
Post-curing required.

Compatible with Form 2 and Form 3B.
Requires Resin Tank LT for printing on Form 2.

BioMed Amber

BioMed Amber Resin is a rigid material for biocompatible applications requiring short-term skin or mucosal membrane contact. Parts printed with BioMed Amber Resin are compatible with common solvent disinfection and sterilization methods. BioMed Amber Resin is manufactured in our ISO 13485 facility.

Consider BioMed Amber Resin for…

  • Medical device and device components
  • Surgical planning and implant sizing tools
  • Research and development

Supports print resolutions: 100 and 50 microns.
Post-curing required.

Compatible with Form 2 and Form 3B.
Requires Resin Tank LT for printing on Form 2.

Elastic 50A

Elastic 50A Resin is our softest material, suitable for prototyping device parts typically produced with silicone and for soft, flexible educational and preoperative planning models.

Consider Elastic 50A Resin for…

  • Vascular system models
  • Simulating soft tissue such as skin
  • Medical device prototyping and testing

 

Supports print resolutions: 100 microns.
Post-curing required.

Requires Resin Tank V2 for Form 3 and Resin Tank  LT for Form 2.

 

Tough 1500

Tough 1500 Resin is the most resilient material in our functional family of Tough and Durable Resins. Choose Tough 1500 Resin for stiff and pliable parts that bend and spring back quickly.  It also simulates polypropylene pieces due to it’s rigidity and strength.

Consider Tough 1500 Resin for…

  • Prototypes that repeatedly bend and quickly return to shape
  • Jigs and fixtures requiring repeated deflection 
  • Simulating the strength and stiffness of polypropylene (PP)

 

Supports print resolutions: 100 and 50 microns.
Post-curing required.
Requires Resin Tank LT for printing on Form 2.

Clear

Clear Resin polishes to near optical transparency, making it ideal for creating see-through models showcasing internal anatomy or for prototyping parts typically manufactured with polycarbonate.

Consider Clear Resin for…

  • Models requiring color contrast via painting or injecting
  • Prototyping tubular or microfluid devices

 

Supports print resolutions: 100, 50 and 25 microns.
Post-curing required.

Resin Tanks

Formlabs Resin Tanks are consumables required for printing with any Formlabs 3D printer which wear over time depending of the material, part orientation and position, layer resolution and model size.

Each material should have it’s own Resin Tank to avoid decrease in print quality and damage to the device.

Form 3 Resin Tank

Low Force Stereolithography (LFS)™ 3D printing uses linear illumination and a flexible film tank to turn liquid resin into flawless parts.

Compatible with Form 3 and Form 3B.

Form 3L Resin Tank

Low Force Stereolithography (LFS)™ 3D printing uses linear illumination and a flexible film tank to turn liquid resin into flawless parts.

Compatible with Form 3L and Form 3BL.

Form 2 Resin Tank

The Resin Tank blocks light and is made from shatter-resistant polycarbonate. It comes with a reusable lid and wiper, making it easy to stack tanks and store resin outside of the Form 2.

Compatible with Form 2.

Form 2 Resin Tank LT

This tank was designed for printing in a high volume production environment and offers a longer tank lifetime than standard Form 2 Resin Tank for some Formlabs resins.

Compatible with Form 2.
