Antibacterial action has been scientifically validated eliminating more than 99.99% of fungi, viruses, bacteria and a wide range of microorganisms. The Nano-Additive mantains all the mechanical properties of the material.
Our portfolio of materials is scientifically tested in microbiology laboratories and has successfully approved the most demanding mechanical tests. PLACTIVE AN1™ is an innovative Nanocomposite developed with a high quality PLA and a patented, scientifically validated and highly effective Nano-Copper additive. Antibacterial action has been scientifically validated eliminating more than 99.99% of fungi, viruses, bacteria and a wide range of microorganisms.
Antimicrobial properties confirmed microbiology laboratories in Chile, USA, UK, and Dubai.
The manufacturer also has certification ISO 9001/2015 and is REACH compliant. Clinically tested in prosthesis for amputees with excellent results. Ideal for the manufacture of other medical applications where it’s dangerous to have bacterial contamination, such as postoperative prostheses, wound dressing and surgical equipment.
The Nano-Additive mantains all the mechanical properties of the material. Antimicrobial additive used in PLACTIVE has been tested against Human Coronavirus strain 229E, under the EN14476 + A2 standard, with a 90% of reduction at 5 minutes, until reaching a plateau near 60 minutes with a 99.975% of viral reduction. Non-toxic product and environmentally friendly (biodegradable).
It has thermoforming characteristics that facilitates post-processing and final adjustments of the 3D printed application.
