Two national standards drafted by eSUN has officially released!
In addition to its polylactic acid (PLA) industrialization technology, eSUN also has the world's leading polycaprolactone (PCL) continuous polymerization technology. The release of the current national standard of polycaprolactone (PCL) will promote the application of products and the development of the industry.
Polycaprolactone is a semi-crystalline biodegradable polymer with a white appearance, a melting point of 58-60 ° C, a waxy texture, good flexibility, and low temperature plasticity. Its low temperature viscosity can be used in PUR adhesives, hand molding and 3D low temperature filament applications; PCL products are not irritating to the skin after molding, and are widely used in disposable medical plates, medical bandages, etc. It’s a safe and environmentally friendly material.
Based on the synthesis of polylactic acid and polycaprolactone materials, eSUN has been conducting research on modification and application of materials, and has mastered the processing technique such as material injection molding, extrusion, film, fiber, foaming and lamination.

In terms of biomaterials application, eSUN has been the world pioneer to expand the application of PLA in 3D printing since 2006, becoming the global leader in FDM 3D printing materials, and eSUN 3D printing filaments has become an internationally renowned brand. In 2015, the company applied for the relevant national standard formulation task, which lasted more than three years to complete, and was officially released this year, which will effectively promote the healthy development of 3D printed materials!
