Henkel is offering an open materials platform to collaborate with manufacturers of 3D printers and system providers to enable the qualification of new materials for different printing technologies. 

As a central element of the open materials platform, the company has developed differentiated materials with a focus on UV-curable silicone elastomeric, ultra clear, durable high impact, high temperature and general-purpose resins. These materials are designed to enable 3D printing for a wide range of applications in the health & wellness, transportation and industrial segments. 

Henkel’s durable high impact resin 3870 is used for the 3D printing of motor adapters that have a consumer-grade finish, replacing the conventional injection molded parts.
