Henkel is one of the materials companies actively engaged in the 3D printing space. At Formnext, the company launched its new photoreactive material that meets flame, smoke, and toxicity (FST) standards. There are other flame-retardant materials as well as a few new FST-certified filaments in the field, but this is the first one (developed with Origin) to be used with a vat photopolymerization-based 3D printer. As Lux expressed before, developing new materials with the end use in mind will help move 3D printing to production – and this material can indeed address end-use applications that demand FST certification in industries like aerospace, medical, railway, automotive, and power generation.
