QUEBEC, Canada, June 23, 2022 / EINPresswire.com/ – Quebec company BOSK Bioproducts and Ontario-based Filaments.ca are introducing an innovation to the 3D printing market: 3D printing filaments made with REGEN™. It’s fully bio-based, compostable, and made in Canada.REGEN™ is a 100% bio-based, compostable bioplastic produced by BOSK Bioproducts. This PHA compound is a sustainable alternative to traditional plastic. It does not contain any toxic or fossil chemical additives and is compatible with processes and equipment in the plastics processing industry.

“While developing 3D printing filaments made with REGEN™, it was essential that the product remain free from toxic chemical additives. Indeed, it is common practice in the industry to incorporate fossil-based additives to improve the performance of bioplastics, but they have adverse effects on human health and our environment. By offering fully compostable, bio-based filaments, BOSK wants to provide a solution to the 3D printing market, which is well known for waste from failed prints.” says Laurence Boudreault, general manager of BOSK Bioproducts.

Bioplastic pellets made by BOSK are converted into high-quality 3D printing filaments by Filaments.ca. With its manufacturing expertise and well-established network built over several years, the Ontario Corporation is Canada’s leading manufacturer of 3D printing filaments and a major partner of BOSK.

Bioplastics “REGEN™” is fully compatible with standard plastics processing equipment and processes. We contacted BOSK because we saw a great opportunity by combining our expertise in 3D printing filament distribution and manufacturing with this innovative bioplastic. — Ron Rifkind, President of Filaments.ca

In addition to biodegrading faster than commonly used PLA filaments, REGEN™ filaments also provide improved performance. They make it possible to print parts that are less fragile, with a smoother finish and better heat resistance.

Made with REGEN™ filament ideal for printing small parts such as figurines, parts, small home accessories, office supplies, toy accessories, kitchenware and more…

Made with REGEN™ Yarn available at Filaments.ca. They are currently offered in 6 color and texture options: natural, white, black, gray, red and even yarns with wood fibers.

REGEN™ bioplastics can be used to make many products. According to BOSK, the 3D printing market, which turns an electronic file into anything, is a logical entry point for introducing REGEN™ bioplastics to consumers. According to Statista, this market, estimated at more than 12 billion in 2020, has strong annual growth of 17% driven by the introduction of innovative materials.
