Nanovia launches an innovative 3D printing filament for the nuclear and medical industries

Nanovia – a French manufacturer of 3D printing materials, has presented a new, semi-rigid filament for FDM / FFF 3D printers, enriched with boro carburetor (B4C). Flex B4C is an advanced composite material capable of absorbing free neutrons and enables 3D printing of containers, fasteners and all components exposed to repeated vibrations that are used in the nuclear and medical industries.

Flex B4C is the second Nanovia filament dedicated to radiation control, after Nanovia PLA XRS, developed for X-rays. B4C is also used in Nanovia’s dedicated sintering filaments, such as Nanovia Cr SiC. The new material can be used at constant temperatures up to 70 ° C, is distinguished by ease of 3D printing and mechanical properties similar to polypropylene. The borocarbide content is 25% by weight. The material is available in diameters of 1.75 and 2.85 mm, priced at €490 per 500 g spool.

Thanks to the introduction of the new filament, Nanovia expands its offer of specialized materials for demanding applications, providing an innovative solution for the nuclear and medical industries. Its unique properties, such as the ability to absorb free neutrons, make it an excellent solution for a sector that requires advanced technologies and high-quality materials.

The development of these types of products is crucial for the future of the nuclear and medical industries, which are gaining more and more opportunities thanks to technological advances. The use of innovative materials for 3D printing contributes to improving not only the quality, but also the safety and efficiency of a wide range of applications in these sectors.
