cexblacknexa3d-polymer Nexa3D launches high-performance polymer material, xCE-Black for producing end-use plastic parts and injection molding tools in minutes. xCE-Black is a single cure polymer that delivers higher flexural strength compared to those typically achieved only in dual cure cyanate ester resins. xCE-Black is considered to have excellent isotropic properties and exhibits long-term environmental stability.

xCE-Black for Variety of End Applications

Nexa3D tested xCE-Black extensively in a variety of end uses and found it to exhibit excellent thermal stability, making it an suitable match for many automotive, electronics, and industrial components.

xCE-Black is used to produce injection molding tools for a wide range of thermoplastic polymers, including PP, PE, HDPE and PETG. Molds printed from xCE-Black were successfully injected hundreds of times at temperatures between 230°C and 280°C without any visible mold temperature degradation or adhesion, and without the use of any mold release agents.

When I needed to produce thousands of belt pulleys in our flexible factory overnight, I selected our new xCE-Black material for the job because of its high flexural strength and long-term stability,” said Brent Zollinger, customer success lead, Nexa3D. “Within the first 2.5 hours into the project, I was able to print 2,000 pulleys in a single build or 13 parts every minute. That’s really fast and extremely practical for serial production of industrial parts.”

Expanded Collaboration for Improved Design Chain

Throughout Covid-19, Nexa3D continues to expand its collaboration with leading polymer suppliers to unlock the potential of new high-performance materials for additive manufacturing applications. Together with its partners, Nexa3D is committed to help its customers improve design agility and supply chain resiliency throughout the design and manufacturing cycle, reducing the time required to produce functional prototypes and production parts from hours to just minutes.

Our rapid materials portfolio and reseller network expansion are consistent with our post-Covid-19 plan to deliver greater supply chain resiliency to our customers,” said Izhar Medalsy, COO, Nexa3D. “With every addition of new materials and market coverage, we are taking decisive steps to deliver a substantial speed and productivity upgrade to our customers through our fast-industrial printers and high-performance polymers at an attractive cost of ownership.”
