CRP Technology launches Windform® RL, the first thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) material within the Windform family of materials for professional 3D Printing.

Rubber-like Thermoplastic Elastomer


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.

Franco Cevolini, CEO and Technical Director for CRP Group stated:
“We created Windform® RL to provide complete and tailored end-to-end service to meet all customers’ needs”.

Flexible parts manufactured in Windform® RL and stiff parts in Windform® materials can be bonded together by epoxy resins or with mechanical joints.

Choosing Windform® RL, customers will benefit from higher quality guaranteed by the experience and reliability of Windform® and CRP Group brands.

Windform® RL Shows Excellent Durability and Stability


  • 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 (e.g. gaskets, hoses, and durable components).

Applications


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


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 colors.
