How do I know if a material is biocompatible?

Biocompatibility is assessed in the broader context of such factors as the intended use – safe to touch or on body components – location of a device in or on a patient, how manufacturing processes‐‐‐including 3D printing and post‐processing‐‐‐have impacted the chemistry of a material, and how degradation products of that initial material can affect the patient. For our materials, you will find the test results and biocompatibility features in our Technical Data Sheet (TDS).
