Evonik is a German technical chemical corporation. It has created Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) bioresorbable powder. It is intended to make 3D printed implantable pharmaceutical tools. The material is called RESOMER PrintPowder.
This material has been made to generate durable and strong pieces with stress protecting abilities. The abilities help to avoid bone loss due to an implant. SVP and General Manager of the Health Care business line, Dr. Jean-Luc Herbeaux said the following: “The free-flowing processability of RESOMER PrintPowder will, for the first time, allow medical device companies to utilize SLS 3D printing technologies to create complex bioresorbable implants with precisely tailored mechanical properties.”
With the RESOMER Printpowder’s debut, the firm becomes the premier industrial GMP supplier of bioresorbable polymers. This is with a full collection of filaments, granules, and powders ideal for usage with all AM technologies. This is as stated by Dr. Jean-Luc Herbeaux.
Beneath the Nutrition & Care section of Evonik, the Health Care business chain, handles more than 1000 nutraceutical, medical device, pharmaceutical customers. In this sector is the RESOMER collection of bioresorbable polymers that has amorphous polymers and semi-crystalline. Formerly, Evonik issued RESOMER Threads, a set of bioresorbable supplies for FFF/FDM.
PrintPowder is the newest inclusion to the RESOMER line. It may be utilized to fabricate additively manufactured Craniomaxillofacial (CMF) dishes, spinal fusion pens, scaffolds for supple tissue restoration and dental nets.
This material may enhance patient curing and machine performance across dental, orthopedic, and soft tissue usage fields.
In 2019 November, the company struck a lasting deal with additively manufactured scaffold creator BellaSeno GmbH. The aim of the deal is to make additively manufactured breast scaffolds by the use of RESOMER materials.
Before this, the firm held a ‘’high single-digit million-euro” series of funding for Meditool. This is a medical machine company in Shanghai. Also, this was the firm’s premier straightforward venture in China.
Also, Evonik ventured into a cooperative agreement with Cubicure to create materials for its Hot Lithography technology. The licensed technique of additive manufacturing called Cubicure Hot Lithography processes supplies with higher influence on toughness, strength, and heat deflection. This is when compared with those normally utilized in standard cold SLA procedures.
