DSM Somos® (Elgin, IL) offers USP Class VI approval for their WaterShed® XC 11122 resin—a clear, water-resistant material already widely used in the medical device industry. The classification officially approves the resin for use in a wide range of biomedical or skin contact applications. Developing advanced biocompatible SL resins for the medical industry is becoming increasingly important. According to Wohler's Report 2008, the medical/dental industry is the third largest industry for additive manufacturing after consumer products/electronics and automotive, but growing at a faster rate than either. Introduced by DSM Somos in 2007, WaterShed XC has quickly become the best-selling clear SL resin on the market, with its winning combination of clarity, durability and high dimensional stability. By adding the biocompatibility component, medical design engineers now have a way to produce exceptional ABS-like prototypes that are USP Class VI approved.
