CRP Technology has developed Windform XT 2.0, the evolution of Windform XT.
Windform XT 2.0 is a polyamide based material carbon filled. It is used with the technology of Selective Laser Sintering and represents the evolution of the well-known Windform XT.

Windform XT 2.0 will replace Windform XT, the polyamide based material carbon filled, strongly recommended for its mechanical features that have made it particular suitable for high performing applications as it is required by motorsport, aerospace, and UAV.

Windform XT 2.0 can combine higher performing mechanical properties compared to Windform XT. Windform XT 2.0 retains the matte black color of the previous version and features improvements in mechanical properties: +8% in tensile strength, +22% in tensile modulus and +46% increase in elongation at break.

Windform XT 2.0 is the high-tech material for Additive Manufacturing chosen by those working in the motorsport, automotive (suitable for example for components under the hood, such as intake manifolds and functional cooling ducts), air (for components UAV, Unmanned Aerial Vehicle), aerospace (useful also to create prototype satellite, such as the CubeSat) and design, as it allows applications that are fully functional, as well as bench testing, or testing and racing on the track.

These applications are given only as an example: the product's versatility, combined with the technology used can assure users of infinite possibilities.
