“Copper 3D Nano Particles embedded into the materials structure, free copper irons which break the micro-organisms membrane and even alter their DNA, eliminating them completely and keeping the material free of pathogens”
is an innovative Nanocomposite developed with a high quality PLA and a patented, scientifically validated and highly effective Nano-Copper additive. This unique combination of technologies brings the following characteristics to our products:
The additive used inis developed with nanotechnology, and being nanostructures of an average size of 20 nanometers or even less, do not affect the macroscopic or mechanical characteristics of the base material.
Copper 3D 3D printing materials and printed objects, have been studied and validated as fully antimicrobial by the Microbiology Laboratory of the Universidad Católica de Valparaíso, in Chile and double-checked in SITU Biosciences Laboratory in the US.
