CRP Technology intros cutting-edge composite material for laser sintering

Feb. 10, 2020
CRP Technology has introduced its Windform FR2 flame-retardant, smooth-surface-finish, electrically insulating, polyamide-based glass fiber-reinforced material for selective laser sintering technology.

CRP Technology (Modena, Italy) has introduced its Windform FR2 flame-retardant, smooth-surface-finish, electrically insulating, polyamide-based glass fiber-reinforced material for selective laser sintering technology. It has passed the FAR 25.853 12-second vertical and 15-second horizontal flammability tests, as well as the 45° Bunsen burner test and Smoke density test. It also offers good wear and temperature resistances.

Consequently, Windform FR2 is suitable for aircraft and aerospace applications, automotive parts (casings of electrical and electronic components, housing and enclosure assemblies), consumer goods (lighting, appliances), and in general for any parts requiring flame retardance. 

“Flame retardants are not new to the 3D printing market, but flame-retardant materials which were also reinforced lacked significant mechanical properties,” says Franco Cevolini, VP and CTO at CRP Technology. “CRP Technology was the first to fill this void, creating not only the first material of its kind, but now two. In order to invent these materials, we anticipated, intercepted, and satisfied the requests of the most demanding and innovative industrial sectors.”
