Surgical Guide Resin is an autoclavable, biocompatible resin for applications including 3D printing dental surgical guides for implant placement. Surgical Guide Resin was formulated specifically for Formlabs printers and rigorously tested to meet solvent disinfection and autoclave sterilization standards for implant systems.
Use Surgical Guide Resin to 3D print surgical guides, drilling templates, pilot drill guides, and device sizing templates that exceed dental demands in accuracy, part quality, and performance.
Surgical Guide Resin is a Class I Medical Device as defined in Article I of the Medical Device Directive (93/42/EEC) in the EU and in Section 201(h) of the Federal Food Drug & Cosmetic (FD&C) Act.
Material properties may vary based on part geometry, print orientation, print settings, temperature, and disinfection or sterilization methods used.
Data for post-cured samples were measured on Type IV tensile bars printed on a Form 2 printer with 100 µm Surgical Guide Resin settings, washed in a Form Wash for 20 minutes in 99 % Isopropyl Alcohol, and post-cured at 60 °C for 30 minutes in a Form Cure.
Surgical Guide Resin was tested at NAMSA World Headquarters, OH, USA.
