Henkel introduces SLA 3D printing resin

Henkel has announced a new resin for Stereolithography or SLA printing as part of its portfolio of Loctite branded photopolymer resins for VAT polymerization technology. 

Henkel has introduced a new resin, Loctite 3D IND408, for 3D SLA printing,

The new Loctite 3D IND408 is planned to be the first of a new range of resins for SLA printing with Henkel hoping to take advantage of the growing number of manufacturers turning to 3D production printing. It’s designed to produce parts with isotropic properties and low moisture absorption. The printed parts are said to exhibit fine features with a smooth, glossy surface finish. The material has good thermal performance at temperatures above 100°C. It can be used at fast print speeds and is suitable for applications ranging from general purpose to end-use parts. 

Loctite 3D IND408 is available now in black. You can find further details from henkel-adhesives.com.
