Nexeo Solutions 3D to expand its 3D printing portfolio with filaments specifically developed for industrial use
THE WOODLANDS, Texas, June 26, 2018 - Nexeo Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ:NXEO), a leader in chemicals and plastics distribution, announced today that it has entered into an arrangement with Polymaker to distribute its new industrial 3D printing filaments C515, C515-FR and SU301, globally.
Headquartered in Shanghai China, global 3D printing material producer Polymaker is committed to innovation, quality and sustainability by developing high-quality materials with enhanced strength and durability for industrial manufacturing.
“Expanding our portfolio to include industrial grade filaments from Polymaker Industrial gives our customers access to a wider range of filaments that solve new 3D printing challenges and meet the demands of manufacturers.” said Paul Tayler, Vice President of EMEA at Nexeo Solutions. “Industrial customers benefit from Nexeo Solutions’ access to world leading plastic producers coupled with additive manufacturing technical expertise.”
“Our Polymaker Industrial filaments stand out because of their printability while also offering all the intrinsic material properties that engineers get with molding technology,” said Wildrik van der Weiden, Business Development Manager, at Polymaker. “We have made it our mission to develop the highest quality filaments, and together with Nexeo Solutions 3D, we are now able to put our materials in the hands of engineers all over the world, allowing more companies to benefit from our extensive R&D.”
Polymaker Industrial C515 is an advanced polycarbonate (PC) filament optimized for 3D printing providing superior printability combined with a low warping effect. Due to its outstanding toughness, the C515 polymer is ideal for industrial applications such as high-volume jigs and fixtures or sports equipment.
Polymaker Industrial C515FR is a flame retardant polycarbonate (PC) filament developed and high-impact resistant filament initially for the aerospace industry. The C515FR filament is suited for industrial applications across many industries such as drones and electronic housings.
Polymaker Industrial SU301 is a polyvinyl alcohol (PVA)-based polymer developed specifically as a support material for FFF printers. Compatible with the most used 3D printing materials such as PLA, TPU, Nylon and PETG based filaments, SU301 is a water soluble filament that considerably simplifies the post-printing process.
Nexeo Solutions 3D will introduce additional Polymaker materials throughout 2018. Explore Nexeo Solutions 3D full range of 3D printing materials at www.nexeo3D.com.
