CRP Technology launches WINDFORM FX BLACK, the new material within the WINDFORM family of materials for professional 3D Printing.

WINDFORM FX BLACK is described as a new generation polyamide based composite material with a dark black colour. Its mechanical characteristics make it particularly suited for Additive Manufacturing applications.

According to CRP, WINDFORM FX BLACK is characterised by 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,” explains Franco Cevolini, CEO of CRP Group.

CRP explains that its consistency and behaviour are similar to polypropylene and ABS injection moulded parts. No post-production treatments are needed, as the material has an excellent surface finish in its sintered state. Any additional manual finishing improves its polish.

“We also recommend it for design applications that require a strong visual impact. CRP lends form and substance to everyone’s most creative ideas with WINDFORM FX BLACK,” notes Cevolini.

CRP claims that WINDFORM FX BLACK is perfect not only for flexible components with fine details, but also for creating accurate, reliable, and long lasting prototypes. It can be considered a highly valuable material in various functional applications and 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.
