CRP Technology, a leading company in the creation of prototypes and final applications in professional 3D printing, launches Windform P2 material.
Windform P2 is a glass fiber reinforced thermoplastic polyamide material with excellent mechanical properties for the High Speed Sintering (HSS) process.
Engineer Franco Cevolini, CRP Technology CTO and VP, states: “Windform P2 is the second polymer from P-LINE, the new Windform range of materials for high speed production-grade 3D printing, introduced on the market less than a year ago. ”
Compared to Windform P1, Windform P2 is distinguished by increased stiffness (Windform P2 Tensile Modulus is 2925.20 MPa ; Windform P1 is 1960.60 MPa), combined to high tensile strength (39.24 MPa, Windform P2).
Engineer Franco Cevolini adds, “Most of the reinforced materials for similar technologies currently on the market show a decrease in the tensile strength property. My staff and I have been able to preserve the high tensile strength in Windform P2.”
As Windform P2 is glass fiber filled, it is an insulating material (CTI rating of 600). Windform P2 is also suitable for manufacturing components with detailed resolution.
Windform P2 is suitable for production of small functional prototypes, end-use parts requiring high stiffness across a variety of sectors, e.g.: Electrical (enclosures and housing for electronics), Consumer and household goods, Industrial products (furniture parts, presentation models, fixtures and tooling), Automotive (rigid parts for interior design)
