    Nexa3D and Henkel deliver high-performance photopolymer for 3D printing

    Nexa3D, the maker of ultrafast stereolithography production 3D printers, announced it has expanded its partnership with Henkel to immediately deliver three new performance photopolymer materials through its expanding Nexa3D channels globally. Nexa3D’s further collaboration with Henkel leverages their combined capabilities to fast-track additive manufacturing towards mass production of functional parts across multiple industries, leveraging the 20X productivity advantage of its ultrafast NXE 400 3D printer.

    No other manufacturing process offers as many possibilities for greater design agility, supply chain resiliency and ultrafast implementation at every phase of the product life cycle. Combining Nexa3D’s productivity with Henkel’s rapidly expanding portfolio of functional polymers makes it possible for customers to manufacture a wider range of parts such as housings, enclosures, pipes, packaging products, footwear components and production tooling for greater performance and functionality.

    xPP405-BLACK is a tough semi-rigid material with high-strength engineering plastic, delivering good impact resistance with performance similar to unfilled propylene. xPP405 boasts a modulus like polypropylene, an impressive 130% tensile elongation at failure, and excellent UV weathering stability as characterized by ASTM G154 testing. xPP405-BLACK delivers an attractive industrial black finish and is ideal for a wide variety of design, engineering and manufacturing of end use parts for piping, consumer and industrial applications, including large housings and enclosures and sheet metal forming dies.
