“It is thanks to this feature that WINDFORM® FX BLACK is suitable for applications for winter sports industry” explains Franco Cevolini, CEO of CRP Group.

Its consistency and behavior are similar to polypropylene and ABS injection moulded parts. No post-production treatments are needed, as the material has an excellent surface finish in its sintered state. Any additional manual finishing improves its polish.

“We also recommend it for design applications that require a strong visual impact. CRP lends form and substance to everyone’s most creative ideas with WINDFORM® FX BLACK” notes Franco Cevolini.
