CRP Technology has been changing the rules of additive manufacturing since mid-90’, smashing records and setting models nowadays that apply to the 3D printing technology with polyamide materials.
A clear sign of this continued performance is Windform® FR1 (FR stands for Flame Retardant), 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. It makes it suitable for Aircrafts and Aerospace applications. Windform® FR1 is halogen free polyamide-based material, that combines superior mechanical properties with excellent stiffness and lightweight
