Antimicrobial Coating for FDM Medical Devices
Demand for surgically viable 3D printed medical devices is growing. In this white paper, you’ll learn how a commercially available, water-based, antimicrobial coating can reduce or eliminate bacteria on 3D printed devices without the need for autoclaving. Tests results include data for 3D printed parts using:
- Standard ABS with no antimicrobial coating
- Modified ABS with silver additive and no antimicrobial coating
- Modified ABS with silver additive and antimicrobial coating
- Standard ABS with antimicrobial coating
Test plates after 48 hours of incubation in Staphylococcus aureus.
