Its features are outstanding: Windform FX Black is characterized by exceptional resistance to repeated bending and torsion, and excellent impact resistance even at low temperatures.

“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.

Windform FX Black is perfect not only for flexible components with fine details, but also for creating accurate, reliable, and long lasting prototypes.

It can be considered a highly valuable material in various functional applications and parts with living hinges or clip fittings.

It is also suitable for ducting of complex shapes, or for thin walled connectors with snap-fit systems. The versatility of the product combined with the technology used, allows for near endless possibilities.
