We are proud to announce that we are now carrying materials produced by Cicla 3D, a material science company specializing in high-tech applications. Cicla’s Nano-Copper particle reinforced plastics are microbiology lab tested and shown to display antimicrobial properties, including antibacterial and antiviral.
Cicla plastic filaments are easy to 3D print with great tensile strength and surface finish at high print speeds. The pure copper nanoparticles inside the filament can eliminate up to 99.9% of bacteria, fungi and viruses in less than 24 hours, making it a great option for applications needing antimicrobial properties.
More information on the antimicrobial properties of copper can be found here.
