PLACTIVE AN¹™ by COPPER3D 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:
PLACTIVE AN¹™ features:
• Antimicrobial action has been scientifically validated (1)
• Clinically tested in prosthesis for amputees
with excellent results (ISO10993 :5 /10 /12) (2)
• Tested by NASA to avoid contamination in long
term space flights (3)
• It has thermoforming characteristics that facilitates
post-processing and final adjustments of the
3D printed application.

PLACTIVE AN¹™ is available from stock in:
PLACTIVE AN1@Copper3D is only available in the original packaging of PLACTIVE AN1.
The antibacterial properties of the filament use to 3D print the antibacterial fingers were tested by two independent laboratories following standard procedures for ISO 22196. The bacterial analysis showed that PLACTIVE™ with 1% antibacterial nanoparticles additives was up to 99,99% effective against staphylococcus aureus and 95,03% effectiveness against Escherichia coli.
