Windform RL, first elastomer in Windform family

CRP Technology unveils a new durable thermoplastic elastomer material with exceptional rubber-like distinguishing features

CRP Technology, a leader in the field of Additive Manufacturing, launches Windform® RL, the first thermoplastic elastomer material within the Windform® family of materials for professional 3D Printing.

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 is a key requisite.

Franco Cevolini, CEO and Technical Director for CRP Group states:

“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).

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. It also allows for the manufacturing “soft-touch” items with non-slip surfaces e.g. handles and overmolded grips.

Windform® RL is the material for simulating cast urethane, thermoplastic elastomer, rubber, and silicone parts along with complex production, F3 prototypes (prototypes to test form, fit, and function). Due to its mechanical properties, Windform® RL assures high performance sealing power.

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 colours.
