CRP Technology has launched a new material of the TOP-LINE range for industrial 3D printing service, the rubber-like Windform TPU. It is extremely elastic, flexible, and soft – thanks to its elongation at break value of >400% – and is suitable for many industrial sectors and applications.

“With Windform TPU, the number of rubber-like materials of the Windform TOP-LINE range rises to two. We can satisfy many more customers’ needs, as they are two rubber-like SLS materials with different characteristics: Windform RL – the first of the Windform range – is a TPE, and it is more rigid, whereas Windform TPU is a thermoplastic polyurethane and it is softer, more flexible,” said Franco Cevolini, CEO and Technical Director of CRP Technology.

Due to its versatility, many industries – from transport to robotics, from design to footwear, sports equipment, and fashion accessories – can benefit from the material. Windform TPU is suitable for manufacturing, for example but not limited to, automotive interior components, gimbal bellows, air cleaner covers, hoses, grips, connectors, joints, and snap fits, and components for the sports sector – from protective equipment to the outsoles of running shoes – thanks to its high abrasion resistance.

Windform TPU is also suitable for parts to be used at low temperatures, or that have to be immersed in oils, greases, or solvents. With Windform TPU, the total number of Windform TOP-LINE materials for professional 3D printing (specifically SLS) rises to eleven.
