Materials for 3D printing medical parts that can be sterilized

Seen a few conversations about this, so thought to share with @vanbluca 's conclusion so far. (He’s a 3D printing expert in the Netherlands):

In general, all plastics with a softening point over 120°C are suitable for heat sterilizing. Here is a list with examples:
PC-PBT: 139°C (also has an ideal glass transition temperature)
CoPA: 180°C
PC-ABS: 135°C
PC: 117°C (bit low but might work)

I just wanted to add another very useful material: GreenTEC Pro by Extrudr. This material is heat resistant up to 160°C. It is also FDA. REaCH and ROHS certified. Might be the best material yet
