The 3D printing service provider CRP Technology presents Windform SL (“Super Light”). It is the twelfth material in the Windform TOP-LINE series, which is intended to set new standards in the field of additive manufacturing. Windform SL, a polyamide-based composite material with carbon fiber reinforcement, combines exceptional lightweight construction with a low density of 0.87 g/cc, making it an ultra-light and stiff material.
Windform SL, an advanced composite material based on polyamide and reinforced with carbon fibers, is characterized by its extremely lightweight nature with a density of only 0.87 g/cc. These properties make it one of the lightest materials on the market without compromising on strength. The development of Windform SL underlines CRP Technology’s commitment to innovation and its desire to stay one step ahead of its customers’ requirements.
Franco Cevolini, CEO and Technical Director of CRP Technology, comments: “Our commitment to innovation is unwavering. We are a historic, pioneering company that continuously creates cutting-edge innovative materials for professional 3D printing, and Windform SL is the latest proof, another step forward in our growth journey that keeps us at the forefront of the industry.
