CRP Technology introduces glass fibre-reinforced material for Selective Laser Sintering

11 February 2020

CRP Technology has introduced Windform FR2, a flame-retardant polyamide-based, glass fibre-reinforced material for Selective Laser Sintering, less than six months after the launch on the market of Windform FR1, the first carbon fibre-reinforced flame-retardantmaterial for professional 3D printing.

Windform FR2 is halogen free polyamide based material, which combines outstanding wear resistance and good temperature resistance. It has successfully 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.

Owing to its flame-retardant quality and insulating properties, Windform FR2 is suitable for aircraft and aerospace applications, automotive parts such as casings of electrical and electronic components, housing and enclosure assemblies, consumer goods, such as lighting, appliances, and in general for any parts requiring flame retardancy.

“Flame retardants are not new to the 3D printing market but flame retardant materials which were also reinforced and presenting significant mechanical properties, lacked,” said Franco Cevolini, VP and CTO at CRP Technology. “We at CRP Technology were the first to fill this void and have created not only the first material of its kind, but now two. In order invent these materials, we must anticipate, intercept and satisfy the requests of the most demanding and innovative industrial sectors.

“It is not electrically conductive.It allows for good detail resolution with smoother surface finish when compared to Windform FR1.”
