Henkel has launched a new class of 3D Printing resins for healthcare applications under its Loctite brand. The portfolio of high-performance photopolymers offers a range of biocompatibility standards from safe-to-touch parts to medical devices.
Henkel 3D printing resins are designed and manufactured in accordance with ISO 13485 quality management standards to ensure uniformity in design, development, production, and delivery of medical devices. In Henkel’s case specifically, it covers the design and manufacturing of biocompatible resins and other materials used to produce non-implantable medical devices.
Henkel resins are validated for use in approved workflows, which enables customers to achieve consistent results in volume production while meeting the relevant biocompatibility measures. This process allows the company to technically engage with partners to assure results meet technical data sheets and are biocompatible. Henkel can help customers de-risk the path to launch a product in the healthcare market by developing products and validating workflows that assure regulatory requirements are met.
