Henkel Loctite 3D printing materials to be used by Shapeways

November 13, 2019 / Sam Davies

Henkel has struck an exclusive partnership with Shapeways which will enhance the accessibility of its Loctite 3D printing materials. The partners plan to showcase the opportunity this collaboration affords at the upcoming Formnext show. Henkel launched its portfolio of materials under the Loctite brand a year ago today and has since introduced a host of prototyping and production resins as it aims to facilitate large scale additive manufacturing. Among its production materials is a high temperature resin which boasts a heat deflection temperature of 185°C, three high impact resins for tooling and fixture applications, and two elastomeric silicone resins for flexible components. These materials can be processed on a number of open 3D printing platforms, with Henkel aligning with such companies as Origin.
