Upgrade to Fast, Durable, Accurate Materials

Our materials are tailored to the LSPc process delivering speed, durability and accuracy. Getting the most out of our proprietary LSPc technology requires a unique combination of chemical and physical properties from our resins. By carefully crafting our resins we are able to provide our customers with unprecedented performances making the NEXA3D resins ideal for a wide range of applications ranging from rapid prototyping, jigs and fixtures all the way to low volume high mix manufacturing.


xCE-Black  – Functional

High performance polymer for producing end-use plastic parts and injection molding tools in minutes. Nexa3D’s new material is a single cure polymer that delivers higher flexural strength compared to those typically achieved only in dual cure cyanate ester resins. xCE-Black has excellent isotropic properties and exhibit long-term environmental stability.

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.
