Henkel unveils new resins for healthcare 3D printing

To enable more applications in healthcare, just like this 3D printed connected stethoscope for tele-medicine, Materials producer Henkel has added a new range of 3D Printing resins for healthcare applications under its leading Loctite brand.

Its growing portfolio of high-performance photopolymers offers a range of biocompatibility standards from safe to touch parts to medical devices.

Recently, the Henkel 3D Printing facilities in Concord (laboratory) and Dixon (production) in California, USA, have achieved the ISO 13485:2016 certification for medical applications. Henkel 3D printing resins are designed and manufactured in accordance with ISO 13485 quality management standards to ensure uniformity in design, development, production and delivery of medical devices. In Henkel’s case specifically, it covers the design and manufacturing of biocompatible resins and other materials used to produce non-implantable medical devices.

Henkel resins are validated for use in approved workflows, which enables customers to achieve consistent results in volume production while meeting the relevant biocompatibility measures. This process allows the company to technically engage with partners to assure results meeting the Technical Data Sheets and are biocompatible. Henkel can help customers de-risk the path to launch a product in the healthcare market by developing products and validating workflows assuring regulatory requirements are met.

Last but not least, the company is also acknowledged for its ability to deliver tailored formulations to fit the specific application requirements and market demands for optimized production.
