CRP Group introduces Windform RL, its first elastomer for SLS

Stay up to date with everything that is happening in the wonderful world of AM via our LinkedIn community.

CRP Technology, a leader and pioneer in the field of additive manufacturing and AM materials, is introducing the new Windform RL material, the first thermoplastic elastomer material within the Windform family of materials for professional 3D Printing.

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 is a key requisite.

“We created Windform RL to provide complete and tailored end-to-end service to meet all customers’ needs”. 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. Customers will benefit from higher quality guaranteed by the experience and reliability of Windform and CRP Group brands.

The new elastomer shows excellent durability and stability: It accommodates chemical and heat resistance and combines superior tear resistance with burst strength. It is ideal for functional rubber-like prototypes and parts (e.g. gaskets, hoses, and durable components). This makes it a 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.

It also allows for the manufacturing of “soft-touch” items with non-slip surfaces e.g. handles and over molded grips. Windform RL can be used for simulating cast urethane, thermoplastic elastomer, rubber, and silicone parts along with complex production, F3 prototypes (prototypes to test form, fit, and function). Due to its mechanical properties, it assures high-performance sealing power.

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