High performance polyamide based material for 3D printing

CRP Technology has launched WINDFORM FX BLACK, a new generation polyamide based composite material within the WINDFORM family of materials for professional 3D Printing. Dark black in colour, its mechanical characteristics make it particularly suited for Additive Manufacturing applications.

WINDFORM FX BLACK is claimed to feature exceptional resistance to repeated bending and torsion, and excellent impact resistance even at low temperatures.

“It is thanks to this feature that WINDFORM FX BLACK is suitable for applications for winter sports industry,” said Franco Cevolini, CEO of CRP Group. “We also recommend it for design applications that require a strong visual impact.”

Its consistency and behaviour are said to be similar to polypropylene and ABS injection moulded parts. No post-production treatments are needed, as the material has a high quality surface finish in its sintered state.

The material can also be used for creating accurate, reliable, and long lasting prototypes as well as parts with living hinges or clip fittings.It is also suitable for ducting of complex shapes, or for thin walled connectors with snap-fit systems.
