polySpectra introduces a new, biocompatible resin for 3D printing

polySpectra – an American manufacturer of light-curing resins, has presented a new, biocompatible material for 3D printing called COR (Cyclic Olefin Resin) Bio. The premiere of the resin took place at the RAPID + TCT fair that took place last week in Chicago. COR Bio is the third material in the polySpectra offer and at the same time the first biocompatible material. It joins the portfolio after the earlier introduction of the durable COR Alpha and COR Black resins.

The company anticipates that the new material will be used in end-use manufacturing in the healthcare sector, primarily in medical device components, dental products and surgical instruments. In addition, COR Bio can also be used in the production of consumer goods and microfluidic devices.

Among the characteristics of COR Bio are high impact strength, high operating temperature, 100% elongation at break and a glass transition temperature of 135°C.

“COR Bio Resin is a product specifically designed to open the door to previously unachievable photopolymer 3D printing applications in the healthcare and consumer sectors,” commented Raymond Weitekamp, founder and CEO of polySpectra. “COR Bio has an unprecedented combination of strength, biocompatibility and autoclavability – a critical set of features for medical device applications.”

The launch of COR Bio comes just weeks after polySpectra announced the availability of COR Alpha on desktop DLP and LCD UV 3D printers. Like COR Alpha, COR Bio is available for 385nm and 405nm irradiation.
