3D Printed Products to Fight COVID -19
An Unprecedented Human Crisis
The novel coronavirus, COVID-19, has taken the world by surprise and has put it in the eye of a seemingly endless superstorm. Nowhere is the danger clearer and more present than in the shortage of personal protective equipment (PPE) for healthcare workers around the globe, especially face shield and N95 face masks.
3D Printing Industry Steps Up
As the nasty COVID-19 virus spreads and supply of PPE dwindles across the world, innovators in the medical 3D printing industry, such as Zeal 3D Printing, have responded to the distress calls of healthcare professionals. Production has started for specially designed 3D printed anti-COVID-19 items. With the help of our sophisticated industrial 3-D printers, that was already capable of producing prosthetics, airplane parts, etc., we are now also printing life-saving ventilators and respirators.
3D PRINTED MASKS
Face masks were the first to fly off store shelves when news of the virus hit the planet. As a result, health workers are now grappling with a huge shortage of PPE for themselves as they battle to save other people’s lives, at the risk of their own.
For filters, Zeal is improvising with cut-up N-95 masks which could potentially give us at least 4 filters from a single mask. Non-woven polypropylene is also a potentially useful filter, which is undergoing tests at our facility. Please be careful not to use materials containing fiberglass.
3D printing has been able to come up with a solution. The biggest advantage of these masks over traditionally produced masks is that they don’t require a large-scale manufacturing process or a factory crew for the production.
Each 3D printed mask supplied to healthcare professionals will prevent them from getting infected with the virus, as they treat patients from all walks of life. These masks are reusable and can be easily disinfected
3D PRINTED FACE SHIELDS
The faces of healthcare workers are the most vulnerable parts of their bodies as they are exposed to contamination through splashes, sprays, and spatter of body fluids. In such a situation, face shields act as a protective barrier against infections. However, these shields lack peripheral seal, by design, which can allow airborne germs to penetrate the shields. It is advisable that these shields be used in conjunction with other PPE, such as face masks and goggles. For this reason, face shields are categorized as ‘adjunctive personal protective equipment’. Although not the perfect solution in protective gear for healthcare personnel, 3d printing face shields do protect users’ faces, including nose, ears, eyes, mouth, from external fluids. The salient features of face shields, that are being 3D printed, include: • Anti-splash shield • Highest quality • Optical clearance provides abundant visibility while offering sufficient protection to otherwise exposed areas • Adjustable straps made with thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) • Can be shipped in full assembly

3D PRINTED VALVES
Italy, at the epicenter of the pandemic, was the first to run out of medical valves – the critical accessory that connects patients to their ventilators (artificial breathing machines). Out of this dire need arose another innovation – 3D printed ventilator valves.
These valves cost much less than the conventional ones and take only about an hour to make! The valves themselves are designed with very thin holes and tubes, with a wall thickness of 0.8mm or less.
Through the process of reverse engineering, these 3D printed valves, a key feature of oxygen masks fitted to ventilators, are already serving their purpose of saving the lives of thousands of patients!
