Silicon Nitride (Si3N4)

Silicon nitride exhibits superior material properties such as high strength, high toughness, thermal shock resistance and good chemical resistance to corrosion by many acids and alkalis. This material also stands out as a leading choice for orthopaedic implants due to its remarkable surface chemistry and nanostructure that has antibiofouling and osseointegrative properties to support bone growth.1


Applications include the following industries: transportation, aerospace and defense, energy, electronics, semiconductors, and biomedical, spinal and orthopaedic implants.


Hydroxyapatite (HA)

Hydroxyapatite is a naturally occurring mineral that forms the main component of bones. HA has excellent biocompatibility and osteoconductivity, making it an optimal material to use in bioresorbable implants with well-defined, porous and patient-specific geometries. Since HA is fully absorbably, once scaffold has been implanted in the body, bone cells will grow through it, gradually resorbing the material and replacing it with newly formed natural bone.


Ideal for patient-specific biomedical applications in spine, dental, and orthopaedic anatomies.


Tricalcium Phosphate (TCP)

Tricalcium Phosphate exhibits excellent biocompatibility, bioresorbability and osteoconductivity, making it an optimal material for bone substitution in regenerative medicine. Due to its properties, it is possible to manufacture patient-specific resorbable implants with defined pore structures and geometries using this material. During the healing phase, these implants are designed to be resorbed by the body and be replaced by native bone tissue.


Ideal for patient-specific biomedical applications in spine, dental, and orthopaedic anatomies.


Alumina (Al2O3)

Alumina contains one of the most important oxide ceramic materials and is characterized by its desirable properties, including high hardness, corrosion, and temperature resistance. Components made of alumina are electrically insulating and puncture-proof, making them suitable for a wide range of applications such as substrates in the electronics industry among many others.


Alumina can be 3D printed for applications in industries such as dentistry and aerospace, where its exceptional hardness, chemical resistance, and biocompatibility make it ideal for producing dental implants and high-strength components for spacecraft and aircraft.


Zirconia (ZrO2)

Zirconia, dubbed ‘ceramic steel’, offers a combination of high hardness, wear and corrosion resistance, and exhibits one of the highest fracture toughness values among all ceramic materials. Its high thermal expansion and unique resistance to crack propagation make it an excellent material for joining with metals like steel. The biocompatibility of zirconia also facilitates its use in medical applications, such as for dental implants or for orthopaedic implants.


In addition to dental prosthetics and orthopedic implants, zirconia is also used for a wide range of industrial applications such as manufacturing cutting tools, wear-resistant components for heavy machinery, and high-temperature insulating parts, thanks to its outstanding hardness, thermal stability, and resistance to abrasion.


Aluminum Nitride (AIN)

Aluminum nitride is the perfect high-performance ceramic material for thermal applications. The density and thermal conductivity of additively manufactured aluminum nitride components matches that of conventionally produced parts, while properties including a thermal expansion coefficient similar to silicon, as well as high mechanical and thermal stability, make it a desirable material for industrial applications and semiconductors.


Ideal for a wide range of applications, including high-performance electronic components, heat sinks, and advanced aerospace components due to its excellent thermal conductivity and electrical insulating properties.
