The two companies will collaborate to scale novel water detection tape solutions based on printed electronics

Sensor-maker LAIIER and Germany-based chemical and consumer goods company Henkel recently announced a partnership to scale novel printed electronics solutions for smart building applications. As per the official communication, the companies plan to drive the implementation of LAIIER´s Severn Water Leak Detector for commercial and industrial buildings and to combine their tech and innovation capabilities to further develop the solution.

CEO and Co-founder of LAIIER, Matt Johnson expressed excitement about the partnership with Henkel as they are bringing together “unique” technology expertise to further drive the implementation of printed electronics solutions for smart and digital building applications. Johnson further stated: “Henkel´s functional inks have been critical to developing a sensor which is easy to install in a wide variety of spaces, covers a large enough area to be useful and is sensitive to detect a leak as it starts. Together with Henkel we will market and further improve the technology by adding new functionalities such as non-contact liquid level detection tailored for industrial applications as well.”

Stijn Gillissen, Global Head of Printed Electronics at Henkel commented, “Our partnership with LAIIER is another proof point of how we leverage our material expertise in printed electronics within a strong ecosystem to enable digital capabilities for analog products.” Gillissen added, “The LAIIER technology addresses a global challenge by offering a transformative continuous monitoring solution for commercial property insurers and facilities management that helps reduce costs and save resources. Together we aim to further develop the technology and to increase potential application areas towards Industry 4.0 and machine learning as well.”

The notification explained: The novel sensor system solution aims to detect water leakages in buildings at a much earlier stage to minimize the high repair costs resulting from a water leak. The Severn Water Leak Detector (SWLD) is thin, conformable, robust, self-adherent, and designed to work throughout the building envelope. The tape is easy to install by an untrained professional, applicable to various surfaces, and highly sensitive with a large coverage area. It is noteworthy that the Severn WLD technology was launched in November 2022 to address markets such as building construction, building material suppliers, facility management, IoT integration and commercial property insurance.

1876-born Henkel operates globally with a diversified portfolio having its three business units in both industrial and consumer businesses. Henkel Adhesive Technologies is the global leader in the adhesives market – across all industry segments. In its Laundry & Home Care and Beauty Care businesses, Henkel holds leading positions in many markets and categories.

LAIIER makes wireless, connected printed sensors that install like tape, and detect leaks, occupancy, and more. It is building a Surface to Cloud™️ industrial IoT solution that it claims to be uniquely easy to install and scale within the smart building and smart facility. It is touted to address critical use cases in the smart building, like liquid leaks, liquid level, moisture detection, etc.
