At Formnext 2019, Henkel AG & Co. KGaA, Düsseldorf, Germany, introduced a photopolymer for 3D printing. It derives from their Loctite line of products and satisfies the UL 94V–0 standard for flame protection, as well as the 12 and 60s tests for vertical flame protection in aerospace applications. According to the company, this material is especially suitable for areas of application with strong standards for fire, smoke, and toxicity safety, such as vehicle and airplane construction.

“Our new photopolymer exceeds the properties of all materials available on the market for Digital Light Processing Systems,” declares Philipp Loosen, Head of 3D Printing at Henkel. The material was developed specifically for the Origin One 3D printer from Origin, San Francisco, CA/USA.

Open Materials Platform

Henkel states that its 3D printing concept is based on an open materials platform. They are working on this together with various manufacturers of 3D printers. In mid-November the company announced that it is cooperating, for example, with Rapid Share GmbH of Heimsheim, Germany. Since May of this year, materials from Henkel have been available for use in printers from EnvisionTec Inc. of Dearborn, MI/USA.
