windform-fr-material-composite CRP Technology has launched a new composite material from the TOP-LINE family of composite materials for SLS called Windform® FR2. It is a flame-retardant polyamide-based glass fiber reinforced material.

Outstanding Properties of the New Material

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

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

Tested for High Flammability Standards

Windform® FR2 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.

Applications in Vast Industries

Owing to its flame-retardant quality and insulating properties, Windform® FR2 is suitable for Aircrafts and Aerospace applications, Automotive parts (casings of electrical and electronic components, housing and enclosure assemblies), Consumer goods (lighting, appliances) and in general for any parts requiring flame retardancy.

CRP Technology constantly produces technological breakthroughs and highest-level solutions”, commented Franco Cevolini, VP and CTO at CRP Technology.

Only a few months ago we launched Windform® FR1, flame retardant carbon fiber reinforced material. Now we introduced Windform® FR2, a flame-retardant material which is glass fiber reinforced. 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 Cevolini.
