CRP Technology announces a new proprietary material

Windform RS is the tenth material of the Windform® TOP-LINE range of composite materials

CRP Technology, a leading 3D printing company, announces the new proprietary material Windform RS, polyamide-based carbon fiber filled composite with mechanical characteristics for superior AM performance.

Windform RS is the tenth material of the TOP-LINE range of composite materials created, formulated and developed by CRP Technology for Powder Bed Fusion process with composite polymers fibers-reinforced.

“CRP Technology has been always working hard to bring forward customizable PBF 3D printing solutions for any scenario”, says Engineer Franco Cevolini, CEO and CTO, CRP Technology. “We’re building upon CRP Technology’s legacy in materials for AM to create new ones at the highest level for our customers’ benefit, and Windform RS proves it: our focus on innovation led to the creation of a composite material with a very high Tensile Strength (85.25 MPa) that has at the same time excellent ductility (elongation at break of 9.46%) and low density (1,10 g / cc)".

Windform RS is resistant to damage, shock, vibrations, deformations and high temperatures. Its high resilience/strength properties allow it to withstand shocks at various ranges of temperature, even sub-zero: “Windform RS has been successfully tested to – 40 °C” adds Cevolini. It is resistant to water and liquid absorption down to just 1 millimeter part thickness and has been rated HB according to the flammability UL 94 test. Windform RS provides enhanced functionality, offering product designers and engineers greater flexibility and speed in developing intricate parts that must be resistant to fatigue, shocks, high and low temperatures.

Moreover Windform RS offers excellent ease of printing during the manufacturing of parts. “This is a very important property - Cevolini states - not to underestimate.
Many materials on the AM market claim high performance, but their “printability” turns to be difficult during the sintering of the part, thus complications arise leading to bad quality and poor performance.

This does not happen with Windform® RS and with all our composite materials: the Windform TOP-LINE range offers high performance and maintains optimal ease of print, which turn to a superior final product.”
