Nexeo Plastics and Covestro Additive Manufacturing (former DSM AM) are strengthening their partnership in 3D printing through the expansion of material and service offerings available through 3D at Nexeo Plastics. As a premier distributor, 3D at Nexeo Plastics will now also offer direct global distribution of additional Covestro filaments, as well as Somos resins for SLA and Digital Light Processing/Liquid Crystal Display (DLP/LCD) 3D printing.

Since 2016, the two companies have been partners, distributing filaments for 3D printing in Europe and North America. Through the expansion of material offerings and multiple inventory storage locations, 3D at Nexeo Plastics will distribute globally and ship directly to customers, shortening lead times. Industry players will also benefit from broader application development and technical support through Nexeo Plastics’ 3D team.

“As part of our business growth strategy, we continue to expand our 3D printing product portfolio and support services,” said Paul Tayler, president, and chief executive officer of Nexeo Plastics. “Our expanded partnership with Covestro, an industry leader, enhances our material offerings with sustainable, quality materials that our customers want and need.”

Covestro’s rapidly growing portfolio of high-performance and functional materials offers some of the best mechanical and thermal properties in the industry with a key focus on sustainability. As the 3D printing industry continues to grow, Covestro understands that manufacturers need a simple process to acquire materials without sacrificing technical expertise. 3D at Nexeo Plastics provides this solution.

Jill Cohen, Commercial Director Additive Manufacturing at Covestro, added: “Our material experts develop material-processing combinations so customers can 3D print parts with the right properties for their applications. To deliver these materials when and where our customers need them, we work with fulfillment and tech service specialists like 3D at Nexeo Plastics. Their team is very complementary to our own team; we speak the same language.”
