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 High Speed Sintering 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, which is the first material from P-LINE family, 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).
“This is – Engineer Franco Cevolini adds – a very important property. Windform® P2 is stiffer than Windform® P1 because Windform® P2 is reinforced (Windform® P1 is not reinforced). 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. Therefore, Windform® P2 overall’s performance is superior than the performance of similar materials currently on the market for similar technologies. “
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 ideal 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)
