3D Printable Biomaterials

Osteoconductive PEEK filament

Evonik, Darmstadt, Germany, is expanding its portfolio of 3D printable biomaterials for medical technology. VESTAKEEP® iC4800 3DF is a new osteoconductive PEEK filament that improves fusion between bone and implants. The high-performance polymer can be processed in common extrusion-based 3D printing technologies such as fused filament fabrication (FFF). Osteoconductivity was achieved by using biphasic calcium phosphate (BCP), a functional special additive. With a diameter of 1.75 mm, the PEEK filament in natural color is wound onto 250 or 500 g spools. It can be used directly in standard FFF 3D printers for PEEK materials.
