Californian 3D printing startup Origin and leading global chemical company Henkel have added a new fire-resistant photopolymer to their respective open material portfolios. Compatible with the Origin One and other DLP systems, this new resin is the product of a partnership between the two parties signed in February this year.

The news also follows the launch of Henkel’s Loctite materials earlier this week, with 3D printing on-demand available as part of the ‘Loctite powered by Shapeways’ program.

Philipp Loosen, Head of 3D Printing at Henkel, comments, “The development of our new fire-resistant material is a real breakthrough innovation exceeding the properties of all currently available materials for DLP systems on the market.”

“TOGETHER WITH ORIGIN WE HAVE PROVEN OUR CAPABILITIES TO UNLOCK THE TRANSFORMATIVE POWER OF 3D PRINTING TOWARDS INDUSTRIAL MANUFACTURING.”

May - Henkel - Printer - Manufacturers - System

Announced in May 2019, Henkel has committed to working with 3D printer manufacturers and system providers to broaden the available materials in the UV curing sector. Working within this sector, Origin is on such partner, which also has an open material approach.

Prior to the launch of the Origin One at RAPID + TCT 2019, Origin gradually built up a network of leading materials partnerships including one with Royal DSM, and another with BASF.
