Nexeo Solutions (The Woodlands, TX, US) has launched a new website (www.nexeo3d.com) that provides exclusive access to Arnitel ID and Novamid ID, premium filament grades specifically designed by DSM (Singapore) for the 3D printing market.

The new e-commerce platform enables customers to buy filaments or order samples. Nexeo’s years of experience of working with a wide range of thermoplastic materials plus DSM’s deep material technology and application know-how delivers in-depth content to help guide customers to selecting the right material for their needs.

Nexeo Solutions 3D is a specialized group within Nexeo Solutions that focuses primarily on premium 3D printing filaments for fused filament fabrication (FFF) technology servicing a broad cross-section of industries, including automotive, healthcare, electrical/electronics, packaging, and sports and leisure and to meet the needs of high demanding professional consumers who want improved properties of their 3D printed objects with excellent layer-to-layer adhesion and higher printer speed.

Arnitel ID is a highly flexible TPC (thermoplastic copolyester) used in electronics, sports and a wide range of other applications. It is a flexible polymer with very good UV- and chemical-resistance compared to other flexible polymers such as TPU (thermoplastic urethane), reaching elongation at break of up to 400%, according to DSM. Arnitel ID exhibits no buckling, higher print speed, unbeaten layer-to-layer adhesion compared to ABS, PLA, TPU used in the 3D printing market.

Novamid ID is a very ductile, strong polymer suitable for harsh environments and high temperatures, up to 150°C, offering excellent layer-to-layer adhesion, strength and toughness. Since Novamid ID’s bridging performance is unique, the high crystallinity of the polymer allows designs with overhangs.
