CRP Technology launches its first thermoplastic elastomer for 3D printing

March 31, 2017

3D-printingCRP Technology, one of the largest 3D Printing and rapid prototyping companies in Italy, has launched the first thermoplastic elastomer material for professional 3D printing.

Part of the company’s Windform family of materials, Windform RL is a durable thermoplastic elastomer material with exceptional rubber-like distinguishing features. Its mechanical characteristics make it particularly suited for Additive Manufacturing applications requiring complex geometries, and where flexible characteristics are a key requisite.

Windform RL was created to provide complete and tailored end-to-end service to meet all of their customers’ needs, said Franco Cevolini, CEO and Technical Director for CRP Group.

Flexible parts manufactured in Windform RL and stiff parts in Windform materials can be bonded together by epoxy resins or with mechanical joints. Windform RL shows excellent durability and stability as it accommodates chemical and heat resistance and combines superior tear resistance with burst strength.

Windform RL is perfect for functional rubber-like prototypes and parts like gaskets, hoses, and durable components.

Windform RL is the material of choice not only for automotive and motorsport applications requiring flexibility, but also for athletic footwear and equipment, and for all parts requiring excellent shock absorption. Due to its mechanical properties, Windform RL assures high performance sealing power.

Windform RL Seal Infiltration is a method for strengthening, coloring, and sealing Windform RL parts. Windform RL Seal Infiltration enhances the strength at break and creates watertight barrier. It is available in a wide range of colours.
