CRP Laser Sintering materials have passed outgassing screening at NASA according to the ASTM E-595-07 standard.

CRP together with the American unit CRP USA have achieved the certification of Windform SP, Windform XT2.0, Windform GT and Windform LX2.0 to the outgassing tests. The result states: "Materials were tested in accordance to the ASTM E-595-07 standard and are considered passing". The result of this certification, is that Windform materials can be considered suitable for space applications.

This test method covers a screening technique to determine volatile content of materials when exposed to a vacuum environment. This test is therefore fundamental in space applications as the outgassing of the material can change its mechanical and structural properties.
