Henkel and Carbon today announced a partnership that will make Henkel’s single-component technologies immediately available to Carbon customers for use with Carbon’s additive manufacturing process.
The agreement includes access to Henkel’s Loctite 3D IND405 clear resin, certified for Carbon’s Digital Light Synthesis (Carbon DLS) 3D-printing process. Loctite 3D IND405 may be used for enclosures and housings, light pipe prototypes, bottle prototypes, jigs and fixtures for production floors, according to Henkel.
“We are excited to partner with Carbon and combine our innovative, cutting-edge technologies to bring the Loctite 3D IND405 Clear material to market,” said Simon Mawson, SVP and head of 3D Printing at Henkel, in a news release. “We believe that the single-component technologies from Loctite, coupled with the Carbon DLS process, provide a best-in-class solution that enables higher precision, better functionality and outstanding economics. Together that puts us in a great position to deliver on additive manufacturing’s promise to transform industrial manufacturing.”
“We are excited to be partnering with Henkel to add this material to our portfolio of resins,” added Jason Rolland, SVP 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.”
