Henkel and Carbon will develop specific Loctite branded formulations that will be approved and used on Carbon’s additive manufacturing process. Their collaboration will enable industrial customers to access Henkel’s patented single-component technologies (1K), compatible with Carbon Digital Light Synthesis (Carbon DLS) 3D-printing process.
From what we observe from Carbon, the developer of DLS 3D printing technology rarely communicates about its technological partners and mostly about the products that result from the capabilities of its technology and partners.
As for Henkel, the company is acknowledged for its efforts in materials development dedicated to AM. Not to mention that its technological partners are currently on the rise which ultimately leads to new formulations and unexpected applications.
This partnership looks promising for all industries that could benefit from the combination of Carbon’s technology and Henkel’s materials. As a matter of fact, the new LOCTITE 3D IND405 Clear is the first material that has been certified for Carbon 3D printers. Manufactured as a one-part resin, the material is a clear, tough, semirigid, 3D-printable material. Once processed by Carbon’s DLS technology, it enables applications such as enclosures and housings, light pipe prototypes, bottle prototypes, jigs and fixtures for production floors and more.
“We are excited to be partnering with Henkel to add this material to our portfolio of resins,” says Dr. Jason Rolland, Senior Vice President of Materials at Carbon. “Our customers have asked us for a clear material that is tough, durable and high-impact resistant. Loctite 3D IND405 meets those needs, and we’re committed to continuing to provide product developers the widest range of best-in-class materials.”
