Nexeo Solutions, the industrial chemicals and plastics distributor, is expanding its 3D printing portfolio with filaments for industrial use from Polymaker. 

Nexeo Solutions, the industrial chemicals and plastics distributor, is expanding its 3D printing portfolio with filaments for industrial use from Polymaker. 

Polymaker, the developer of 3D printing filaments, headquartered in Shanghai China, has recently launched high-quality materials for industrial purposes. As well as this, the company has now entered into an arrangement with Nexeo Solutions, the industrial chemicals, and plastics distributor.

This agreement is beneficial for Nexeo Solutions as it can expand its 3D printing portfolio by adding Polymaker’s industrial filaments. But, it’s also beneficial for Polymaker as its filaments will be distributed globally. The new industrial 3D printing filaments include C515, C515-FR, and SU301.

“Our Polymaker Industrial filaments stand out because of their printability while also offering all the intrinsic material properties that engineers get with molding technology… 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.”said Wildrik van der Weiden, Business Development Manager, at Polymaker.

Nexeo Solutions Distributes Polymaker Industrial Filaments

The filaments which Nexeo Solutions will be distributing globally include:

  • Polymaker Industrial C515 – this is an advanced polycarbonate (PC) filament. It’s a tough filament which offers low warping effect and “superior printability”. This option is perfect for printing high-volume jigs and fixtures or sports equipment.
  • Polymaker Industrial C515FR – this filament is a flame retardant polycarbonate (PC) filament. It was initially designed for the aerospace industry and is a high-impact resistant filament. It’s best suited for applications such as electronic housings and drones.
  • Polymaker Industrial SU301 – this filament is a polyvinyl alcohol (PVA)-based polymer. Its main purpose is as a support material for FFF printers. It works with most filaments, including PLA, TPU, Nylon and PETG based filaments. To make post-printing processes simple, this filament is water soluble.

Paul Tayler, Vice President of EMEA at Nexeo Solutions, said: “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… Industrial customers benefit from Nexeo Solutions’ access to world-leading plastic producers coupled with additive manufacturing technical expertise.”

There is more to come as Nexeo Solutions 3D will be introducing more Polymaker materials throughout the year. You can find out more by visiting the company’s dedicated webpage.
