The new agreement will provide M. Holland’s industrial manufacturing clients access to a wider range of 3D printing materials, including UV-curable silicone elastomeric, ultra-clear, durable, high impact, high temperature and general-purpose resins.
Sam Bail, Head of 3D Printing North America at Henkel Corporation said:
“Henkel is excited to bring M. Holland on board as our 3D distribution partner. M. Holland has expertise in polymer materials and its use in traditional manufacturing, including molding and machining. With the addition of Loctite 3D resins to the M. Holland portfolio, we believe the partnership will provide M. Holland’s clients new opportunities to use additive manufacturing in their organizations.”
This agreement marks M. Holland’s first expansion into thermoset materials. Henkel’s complementary product set will help serve M. Holland’s clients with rapidly evolving needs in additive manufacturing. Henkel’s portfolio includes several materials, including Loctite 3D resins, a line designed to produce highly aesthetic parts with finely detailed print resolution. These functional photopolymer products provide an open materials platform that can be used to collaborate with manufacturers of 3D printers and system providers.
Haleyanne Freedman, Market Manager, 3D Printing at M. Holland said:
“Henkel’s customer-centered approach combined with our additive manufacturing expertise supports the qualification of new materials for various technologies and applications. M. Holland’s partnership with Henkel will help guide our clients in realizing a wide range of endeavors in additive manufacturing.”
This partnership follows three additional 3D printing agreements, which M. Holland established in 2018. The company previously announced a distribution agreement with 3DXTECH, adding 24 engineering materials to its linecard. Owens Corning named M. Holland the master distributor for its XSTRAND line of fiberglass-reinforced products. The company also signed an agreement to distribute BASF’s line of materials for industrial manufacturing 3D printing applications. M. Holland continues to invest in 3D printing resources to support its Technical Innovation Center in Easton, Pennsylvania, as well as its dedicated additive manufacturing laboratory at its Northbrook, Illinois, headquarters.
