Henkel® LOCTITE® 3D 3843 HDT60 High Toughness

Henkel® LOCTITE®

3843™ HDT60 High Toughness

Tough and durable 3D printing resin for prototyping or end part production

Henkel® LOCTITE® E-3843 is an ETEC-validated material from Henkel, a one-component light cure, an acrylic resin that may be used for prototyping or functional parts production.

Semi-flexible resin for industrial manufacturing

Developed for rigorous engineering applications

E-3843 is a high-performance and high modulus product that boasts excellent flexural and tensile physical properties with a relatively high degree of elongation. This engineering plastic offers good impact resistance and thermal stability thus being suitable for many demanding Engineering applications.
