Choosing the Right Material

 

There are six materials currently validated for use with your XiP printer. Which one you choose will depend on your particular 3D printing application.

PRO410 Resin

PRO 410 Resin is a rigid photoplastic that prints parts with extreme accuracy and an exceptional surface finish. Formulated based on Henkel’s LOCTITE® PRO410 polymer and optimized for Nexa3D’s printers.

 

  • Quick design verification models

  • Display models 

  • Models where accuracy and resolution are critical

xCE-Black Resin

CE is a cyanate ester-like material for high stiffness and temperature applications. It resembles the aesthetics of injection-molded nylons, polyesters, polyamides, and polyimides.

 

  • Functional prototypes are subject to higher temperatures ("under-the-hood")

  • Low volume injection molding inserts for lower temperature plastics 

  • End use parts

xABS3843-Black Resin

xABS3843-Black is a tough and durable material with the aesthetics of injection molded black ABS. High performance, high modulus material boasting excellent flexural and tensile physical properties with a relatively high degree of elongation. It displays high green strength and good heat deflection temperature enabling it to print accurately and function in a wide variety of applications. It has been tested in QUV exterior weathering conditions (ASTM G-154) for 800 hours with less than a 15% change in Tensile and IZOD Impact properties.

 

  • Design verification models

  • Functional prototypes 

  • Snap fits 

  • Jigs and fixtures 

  • Patterns 

  • End-use parts
