xMED412 is polypropylene-like material that is ideal for manufacturing a variety of biocompatible, medical and wearable devices. xMED412 is based on Henkel’s Loctite® MED412 material and is covered by all of its associated clearances, tests and certifications.
xMED412 is developed to deliver highly consistent part performance with extraordinary functionality. The medical-grade material is a very strong and durable photopolymer with mechanical attributes similar to polypropylene with fantastic elongation, impact strength, and compression strength.
xMED412 has been tested and cleared for production of nasopharyngeal swabs that comply with ISO 10993 testing and FDA Class I exempt classification.
xMED412 parts printed on Nexa3D’s NXE400 require post-processing and cleaning in accordance with the company’s recommendations and can be autoclaved, machined, tapped, or polished to deliver desired production finishes.
