Various applications can be envisaged with the smart technologies or polymers of MatX. The possibilities are endless when you consider the benefits of for example improving blood flow or anti-microbial material. Focusing on that, possibilities are objects and tools that help restore or improve the performance of the human body.
Example: Coffee cup
Another example is the creation of a fully biodegradable coffee cup. This coffee cup is 3D printed with the MatX biodegradable material (*4), which is biodegradable among other things, and degrades in just several weeks under home compostable circumstances. That is an enormous progress compared to a standard coffee cup of which the breakdown process takes 50 years to never… In this way it is possible to sort the coffee cups with the organic waste because it is not harmful to nature. This would make a huge difference because of the immeasurable number of coffee cups that are consumed daily.
Another example are soles for shoes. It is possible to print the (unique) sole in 2D. With the use of the deformable polymer of MatX with printing, the sole will be deformable which will give the possibility to correct any error margins. Sharp edges will also be no problem, as these can easily be rubbed away after heating the object. In this way you can create a perfect customized sole for the shoes.
*4: According to TÜV AUSTRIA, MatX is certificated to use the conformity mark ‘OK compost HOME’.
