3D-Bioplotter PCL 45K RG

Polycaprolactone (PCL) is one of the most versatile thermoplastic materials for Tissue Engineering Applications. With little thermal degradation, it is an excellent material for large, time-consuming parts. The mechanical stability of PCL objects can easily be controlled by the porosity of the parts.

With solid objects exhibiting increased mechanical stability compared to porous structures, PCL is an outstanding candidate for both bone and cartilage regeneration. Additionally, the surface erosion of the material allows for controlled release of additives during the degradation period of the fabricated part.
