Nexa3D unveils three new functional polymers for durable prototype, production tools and functional end-use parts powered by Loctite™ high performance materials with extended UV weathering stability 

VENTURA, CA, February 9, 2021Nexa3D, the maker of ultrafast stereolithography production 3D printers, announced today 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.

“We are pleased to further expand our partnership with Nexa3D as Loctite’s portfolio of photo-plastic and photo-elastic materials are well-matched for the higher throughput of the NXE400 3D printer,” said Ken Kisner, Head of Innovation for 3D Printing at Henkel. “The Nexa3D team have continued to deliver robust 3D printing solutions, and together we look forward to continuing to deliver an expanded portfolio of production tools, materials, and the validated workflows that the industry requires to realize the full potential of additive production.”

“We believe that our rapidly expanding collaboration with Henkel, now spanning six Loctite materials, coupled with our demonstrated 20X productivity gains achieved by our ultrafast NXE400 3D printer and up to 85% lower total cost of ownership, delivers higher productivity, better extended life functionality and exceptional economics,” said Kevin McAlea, Chief Operating Officer, Nexa3D. “Both companies are committed to democratizing access to scalable additive polymer solutions, empowering customers to own their supply chain throughout their entire product life cycle from design to production and aftermarket success.”

The three new materials are immediately available through Nexa3D’s growing network of resellers. Contact us to find a reseller near you, or to schedule your live 3D printing demo today via Zoom.
