Materials

There are many different materials used in 3D printing, but not all of them fulfill the special requirements and regulations for medical applications, such as biocompatibility.

Compatible and durable materials are particularly important for products in medical device classes IIb and III, and the requirements are therefore high.

To tackle these problems, in this working group we focus on the following tasks:

  • null

    Defining the limitations, challenges and chances for suitable materials to several application fields

  • null

    Implementing new guidelines, creating templates for materials, AM technology and medical devices

  • null

    Creating an overview of materials certified for medical purposes (ceramics, polymers, metals, new materials)

  • null

    Cooperating with the Mobility Working Group Materials to exchange knowledge and experience
