Today, Henkel is announcing the launch of a new industrial resin, Loctite 3D IND249. As an industry leader focused on photopolymer materials for production-level additive manufacturing, the company continues expanding its portfolio of resins with mechanical properties suitable for end-use industrial applications.
Loctite 3D IND249 is a high-temperature and high-strength material that can print challenging geometries with fine feature resolution. Additionally, the resin offers low viscosity while still displaying high green strength, enabling high-accuracy printing and maintaining ease of processing. High-strength and thermal durability make Loctite 3D IND249 ideal for production applications such as mold tooling and manufacturing aids. At the time of launch, Loctite 3D IND249 has several validated workflows on printers from Nexa3D, Rapid Shape, and Stratasys, with additional platforms to be onboarded in the near future.
“We are very excited to expand our portfolio of high-performance 3D printing materials for end-use applications to include Loctite 3D IND249,” said Daniel Adams, VP of 3D Printing. “Having this high-temperature and high-strength material capable of printing fine, challenging part geometries will broaden the range of end-use applications for our customers.”
Henkel will have this new material, Loctite 3D IND249, featured in their booth (#1947) alongside their broader portfolio of photopolymer materials at RAPID + TCT from May 2nd to May 4th at McCormick Place in Chicago, IL.
