PLACTIVE AN¹™

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:

  • Antibacterial action has been scientifically validated eliminating more than 99.99% of fungi, viruses, bacteria and a wide range of microorganisms;
  • Clinically tested in prosthesis for amputees with excellent results*
  • Tested by NASA to avoid contamination in long term space flights**
  • Non-toxic product and environmentally friendly (biodegradable);
  • It has thermoforming characteristics that facilitates post-processing and final adjustments of the 3D printed application.

Additional info:

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.
