The medical filament GLYCOLACTISSE 85:15 is a medical-grade poly (lactic-co-glycolic) acid [PLGA] copolymer composed of Lactide acid (85%) and Glycolide acid (15%) of exceptional quality. It is biocompatible, implantable, and bioresorbable. Indeed, this rigid thermoplastic is almost totally amorphous transparent, and slightly golden. Its resorption time is 12 and 24 months. It is used for the manufacture of bone implants and tissue engineering. It can be mixed with loads such as hydroxyapatite or beta-TCP. The properties of this filament are close to the PLA, so it is easy to print.
- For optimum quality, we recommend printing the filament with the extrusion temperature between 180 and 230°C, at a speed of 10 to 90 mm/s, and with the heatbed temperature between 50 and 70°C.
Specialized in tissue engineering and 3D printing, Lattice Services offers innovative solutions to medical device manufacturers, public and private biomedical researchers in relation to 3D printing filaments. The entire range of Lattice Medical filaments is made in France from 100% resorbable and implantable medical-grade polymers.
Lattice Services has been offering its know-how and expertise dedicated to the design, production, and commercialization of medical-grade 3D printing filaments for the development of innovative implants for 4 years. The company also offers solutions to improve tissue engineering and regenerative medicine using 3D printed bio-absorbable scaffolds.
In collaboration with CHU Lille, Lattice Services provides product design, R&D services, and various solutions for soft tissue engineering and regeneration. Alongside textile manufacturing partners, they also develop textile matrices that are obtained by the Leavers method.
