DUSSELDORF, GERMANY: 3D Printing is a fast-growing technology spread across nearly all industries. Henkel Adhesive Technologies utilises its technical expertise in material development to introduce novel materials that enable functional prototyping and additive manufacturing within the market.

Henkel expands its broad product range by introducing novel light cure resins. The materials are to be deployed in SLA/DLP printing and will be commercialised in 2017. Henkel’s hotmelt adhesives have already been used in the 3D-printing of functional applications such as furniture and elements for buildings. Henkel is focusing development in this area on providing novel filament and powder materials for us in SLS and FDM printers.

“Thanks to our broad material portfolio and our large customer base across different industries, we have the access and ability to enable 3D printed solutions for all kinds of functional applications,” said Mike Olosky, corporate senior vice president and global head of innovation and new business development at Henkel Adhesive Technologies.

One way Henkel demonstrates its 3D printing expertise is through a partnership with the Dutch design and architecture start-up DUS Architects. The partners are working on a project to create a house façade, including the interior walls, that is made up of 42 components, which are to be printed and constructed with the help of a giant 3D printer by 2017.
