CRP  Windform
CRP Technology Windform® RL Thermoplastic Elastomer for SLS
Categories: Polymer; 3D Printing/Additive Manufacturing Polymer; Thermoplastic; Elastomer, TPE

Material Notes: Processed by selective laser sintering (SLS). 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. It shows excellent durability and stability: it accommodates chemicals and heat resistance and combines superior tear resistance with burst strength. Windform® RL withstands repeated bending and deformation. It allows to manufacture accurate, reliable, and long lasting prototypes and durable end-use parts. It also guarantees accurate and superior surface finish and fine details. Windform® RL Shore A hardness value may vary in the range from 45 (Minimum) to 80 (Maximum). Due to its main 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 colors.

Application Examples: Functional rubber-like prototypes and parts (e.g. gaskets and hoses), durable components. Windform® RL is the material of choice for athletic footwear and equipment, and for all those parts requiring flexibility and good shock absorption. Its use allows to manufacture “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, functional and F3 prototypes (prototypes to test form, fit and function). It is also suitable for parts that require joining with adhesives.
