A new high-strength industrial resin developed by Henkel reportedly is especially well suited for 3D printing mold tooling and manufacturing aids.
Loctite 3D IND249 is a high-temperature, high-strength material that can print challenging geometries with fine feature resolution, said Henkel in today’s announcement. Additionally, the resin offers low viscosity while still displaying high "green" strength, enabling high-accuracy printing and maintaining ease of processing.
Validated workflows are already available for processing the resin on Nexa3D, Rapid Shape, and Stratasys printers; additional platforms will be onboarded in the near future, said Henkel.
Henkel will showcase Loctite 3D IND249 at booth 1947 alongside its broader portfolio of photopolymer materials at RAPID + TCT on May 2 to 4 at McCormick Place in Chicago. To learn more about the new resin, download the technical data sheet from the LoctiteAM website.
