ACEO Launches Hard/Soft Multi-Material 3D Printing


WACKER’s ACEO team launches another new-to-the-world material combination that allows silicone elastomers and epoxy thermoset materials to be printed in one single print. The resulting combination of hard and soft materials enables designers and engineers to develop new, highly functional applications.


ACEO® – WACKER’s “3D printing with silicones” brand – continues to expand its technology portfolio. Multi-material printing with different silicones – color and hardness combinations – has been available for a number of years now. ACEO®’s industrial printers are equipped with four nozzles and so parts with up to four different materials (incl. support material) can be printed. At formnext 2018, ACEO® added electrically conductive silicone to its multi-material portfolio. For further information see the IDTechEx report on 3D Printed Materials Market 2020-2030: COVID Edition.


Today, we are proud to announce another unique multi-material option, which allows silicone elastomers to be printed in combination with epoxy thermoset material. WACKER ACEO® and DELO Industrial Adhesives worked together to enable this novel combination of hard and soft materials. The technology uses DELO’s specially developed DELO KATIOBOND AM6677 grade that has been optimized for printing with ACEO®’s drop-on-demand process.
