Please contact us to pre-order.

PLACTIVE AN1™ is an innovative Nanocomposite developed with a high quality PLA and a patented, scientifically validated and highly effective Nano-Copper additive. This unique combination of technologies brings the following characteristics to the products:

  • Antibacterial action has been scientifically validated eliminating more than 99.99% of fungi, viruses, bacteria and a wide range of microorganisms.
  • Clinically tested in prosthesis for amputees with excellent results. Ideal for the manufacture of other medical applications where it’s dangerous to have bacterial contamination, such as postoperative prostheses, wound dressing and surgical equipment.
  • Antibacterial properties confirmed by two microbiology laboratories in Chile and USA. PLACTIVE™ is a FDA Registered Material and EU compliant (No. 10/2011, No. 1935/2004 and No. 2023/2006). The manufacturer also has certification ISO 9001/2015 and is REACH compliant.
  • The Nano-Additive maintains all the mechanical properties of the material.
  • It has thermoforming characteristics that facilitates post-processing and final adjustments of the 3D printed application.
  • PLACTIVE is currently being tested by NASA to evaluate its impact on interplanetary microbial contamination.
  • Non-toxic product and environmentally friendly (biodegradable).

PLACTIVE ™ ANTIMICROBIAL ACTIVITY

These graphics shows the results of studies conducted by microbiology laboratories in USA, Chile and Dubai1,2,3. These studies confirm that the Colony Forming Units (CFU) of Staphylococcus aureus MRSA and Escherichia coli DH5α and other common microbes, falls abruptly during the first minutes in contact with PLACTIVE, continuing the elimination of bacterial strains until reaching >99.99% elimination at 24 hours.

ABOUT ANTIMICROBIAL ACTIVITY OF COPPER

Copper and Nano Copper inhibits the replication and propagation abilities of SARS- CoV4, influenza5 and other respiratory viruses, having a high antimicrobial (antiviral and antibacterial) potential and, as Copper can inactivate viruses as SARS-like and SARS- Cov4, influenza virus5, H1N1, and eliminates dangerous bacteria like Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli, Listeria, among others6, after a short period of exposure, Copper3D’s PLACTIVE® and Mdflex® could be an effective and low-cost complementary strategy to help reducing transmission of several infectious diseases by limiting nosocomial infectious transmission.

COVID-19

The COVID-19 is becoming the most devasting pandemic in modern history and the only effective strategy to stop new infections have been the promotion of the use of masks, the importance of hand washing, remaining home and waiting until the scientific community develop a more straightforward strategy to deal with the SARS-CoV-2.

SARS-CoV-2, when compared with the SARS-CoV-1, is inactivated faster using copper and the use of smaller particles can reduce inactivation time from hours to seconds. 1, 2

These analyses support the incorporation of copper alloys or iembedded copper materials on sanitary dependences and mass compsumption products as a complementary strategy that may help reduce bacterial and viral load, therefore; limiting nosocomial infectious and reduce transmission from touching surfaces.

KNOW MORE ABOUT OUR NEW ANTIMICROBIAL AND FLEXIBLE MASK, NANOHACK MAVERICK

Basically, there is a breakdown in the global stock of face masks, and it is a basic necessity for general population in most countries. In many places the authorities have also recommended the use of these masks (or similar) on public transport. These masks, despite being effective, also have some problems like poor lateral fit, short lifecycle (about 8 hours, trash waste), and have another even more serious problem. Respiratory viruses, specifically SARS-Cov-2 (COVID-19) can live up to 72 hours on different surfaces. This is a problem since using a conventional mask, at the end of the day we would have a high viral load trapped within millimeters of our nose and mouth, further exposing ourselves to these dangerous microbes. Our approach is to use active (antimicrobial) materials to address this problem, with a unique value proposal: THE FIRST Antimicrobial, Reusable, Washable face mask ever designed. THE FIRST Antimicrobial, Reusable, Biocompatible, Washable and N99 standard face mask ever designed.
