*Unlike Formlabs Dental Resins, no intended uses are provided for BioMed Resins. Material properties may vary based on part design, manufacturing practices and other methods. It is the manufacturer’s responsibility and its respective customers and end-users to determine the biocompatibility and performance of all printed parts for their respective application and use. To instill confidence in potential users, Formlabs has tested biocompatibility and sterilization compatibility for common use cases and manufactures BioMed Resins in an ISO 13485 certified facility. We can offer representative examples of what customers have done with our products and the supporting documentation we make freely available.

2 Data for post-cured samples were measured on Type IV tensile bars printed on a Form 2 and Form 3B (impact and thermal measurements) printers with 100 µm BioMed Amber Resin settings, washed in a Form Wash for 20 minutes in 99% Isopropyl Alcohol, and post-cured at 60°C for 30 minutes in a Form Cure.

3 BioMed Amber Resin was tested at NAMSA World Headquarters, OH, USA.


Form Wash Settings


20 min in IPA or until clean


Wash until clean in ≥ 99% IPA. Biocompatible resins must be washed in a dedicated biocompatible IPA bath. They cannot be washed in IPA that is cross-contaminated with other resins.

Form Cure Settings


30 min


70 °C (Form 3B+/3BL)
60 °C (Form 2)


Follow the post-curing indications to achieve maximum material properties.
