Material Overview

Forge Lab's Bio-Medical resin is a high clarity transparent resin formulated to replicate the material properties of Polycarbonate. This medical-grade material exhibits excellent rigidity and and strength, providing a robust solution for producing biocompatible parts. Its excellent clarity allows for the creation of transparent or translucent parts with high precision and detail, which is particularly advantageous in medical applications that require visualization of internal structures or fluid flow.

Mechanical Properties

Mechanically, Accura Clearvue Biomedical Resin exhibits robustness and durability, essential traits for medical-grade materials. It has a high tensile strength and can withstand significant stress and strain without deforming or breaking. This makes it ideal for applications where it may be subject to mechanical loads, such as in surgical guides or anatomical models. Its rigidity and stability under mechanical stress ensure reliability in critical medical environments.

Chemical Compatibility

In terms of chemical compatibility, this resin demonstrates excellent resistance to a variety of chemicals and solvents commonly used in medical settings. It can withstand exposure to alcohols, oils, and mild acids, maintaining its structural integrity and appearance. This resistance is particularly important for sterilization processes, where the material may be exposed to harsh chemicals or rigorous cleaning procedures.

Thermal Properties

Our biomedical resin exhibits moderate heat deflection temperature which is more than suitable for normal conditions, though it might deform or lose integrity under high-temperature scenarios, such as autoclave sterilization. Fortunately, our rigorous USP Class VI Biomedical wash process, designed specifically for Accura Clearvue, fully sterilizes parts, avoiding the need for thermal sterilization procedures.

Applications

Bio-Med Clearvue is specifically engineered to safely contact living tissue, making it well-suited for implantable medical devices that require seamless integration with the human body.  All Bio-Medical parts undergo a rigorous five-step post-processing and cleaning procedure to meet the stringent requirements of USP VI biocompatibility.
