New BioMed Flex 80A Resin and BioMed Elastic 50A Resin Enable Workflows for Elastomeric, Biocompatible 3D Printed Parts

Formlabs is pleased to announce two new materials for direct 3D printing of elastomeric, biocompatible medical devices and models. BioMed Flex 80A Resin and BioMed Elastic 50A Resin further expand 3D printing possibilities in medical device and medical component manufacturing as well as at the point of care in hospitals and in medical service bureaus. 

Traditionally, professionals in these industries must rely on multi-step silicone molding processes, which are often labor-intensive and messy or they must outsource to expensive contract manufacturers. 

Now, with BioMed Flex 80A Resin and BioMed Elastic 50A Resin, professionals can combine the benefits of traditional elastomeric and biocompatible materials with the ease of use and streamlined workflow of Formlabs resin 3D printers. 

These two new materials are ISO 10993 and USP Class VI tested and produced in an FDA-registered, ISO 13485-certified facility, ensuring that medical professionals can use these products with the utmost confidence. As Formlabs’ library of biocompatible materials expands, 3D printing becomes an option in more workflows and applications, improving patient care, reducing costs, and expanding possibilities.
