Innovation in 3D Printing Field: CRP Technology Welcomes Windform® FR1

Windform® FR1 (FR stands for Flame Retardant) is the new-born material from the Windform® TOP-LINE family of composite materials for Additive Manufacturing.

It is intended to become a game-changing material in the field of 3D printing for its uniqueness: it is the first Flame Retardant (UL 94 V-0 rated) material for Additive Manufacturing which is carbon fiber reinforced. It is also passed successfully the FAR 25.853 12-second vertical and 15-second horizontal flammability tests as well as the 45° Bunsen burner test.

“Only a few days from the launch of a new range of Windform® materials, the P-LINE for HSS technology – commented Franco Cevolini, VP and CTO at CRP Technology – I’m very proud to launch a new revolutionary composite material from the Windform® TOP-LINE family of materials for Laser Sintering technology. Our aim is to constantly produce technological breakthroughs. With Windform® FR1 we can steer you toward the proper solution for your projects”

Windform® FR1 is halogen free polyamide-based material, that combines superior mechanical properties with excellent stiffness and lightweight.

Owing to its flame-retardant quality, this high-performance polyamide based composite material is suitable for Aircrafts and Aerospace applications (interior parts, cockpit, cabin components, air conditioning piping, air ducts, air outlet valves); Automotive and Transportation parts (vehicle interiors, housing and enclosure assemblies); Consumer goods and Electronics (lighting, appliances) and in general for any parts requiring flame retardant rating.

Windform® FR1 is also ideal for high feature detail applications requiring FAR 25.853 fire retardant compliancy.

Windform® FR1 is also suitable for the manufacturing of components with detailed surface resolution.
