SKILCRAFT® 3D PAPC

 FDA compliant biomaterial with a high strength to weight ratio and bio-absorbable qualities

About SKILCRAFT 3D PAPC

SKILCRAFT Polyamide Polyolefin and Cellulose (PAPC) filament utilizes all FDA-compliant ingredients. PAPC offers excellent biomaterial technology for 3D printing applications requiring high strength and FDA compliance.  This biomaterial filament is designed to produce compounds with a high strength to weight ratio, as it has a high degree of flexibility with bio-absorbable qualities.

Our PAPC is extremely tough, does not produce an offensive odor, provides good chemical resistance and non-traditional plastic surface, and it can be coated. PAPC is used in bio-medical applications such as anatomical models and medical devices.

Success Tips

Before starting your print, consider:

  1. Has your material been exposed to moisture? If it is new and in the vacuum-sealed bag with desiccate, you should be fine .But if there is a risk of exposure, it is best to remove as much moisture as possible for optimum printing. Drying the filament in a heated oven environment from 100-120 degrees F should do the trick. Our spool is made of recycled polycarbonate, which withstands much higher temperatures than typical spools mad of HIPS.
  2. If your application requires maximum strength, we recommend post-annealing after the print is complete. Annealing is a reheating process at a lower temperature that reduces stress in the material and creates a stronger bond. This 1) yields better mechanical and thermal properties and 2) reduces the possibility of cracking due to contraction and expansion over time. Typically, you perform the annealing in an oven at a temperature range of 176-266° F (80-130° C)

Other considerations:

  • Recommended Print Speed: we find results are best at a speed of 40 ñ 100 mm/s
  • For prints with curvatures, we recommend turning on rafts and supports in your settings
  • For more stability and a higher quality print, we suggest adjusting three settings:
    • (1) reduce the speed of the extruder to 30-60mm/second;
    • (2) Increase infill to 30%;
    • (3) Reduce layer height to 0.10mm
