Windform SP from CRP Technology is a composite, polyamide-based carbon-filled material with characteristics that make it suitable for a series of applications, including the motorsport industry. Characterized by a deep black color, Windform SP is used for 3-D printing and additive manufacturing. It provides increased resistance to shocks, vibrations, and deformations. It can be used to create reliable prototypes and is suited for functional applications in motorsports, automotive (components under the hood, such as intake manifolds), and aerospace (components for unmanned aerial vehicles, for example). According to CRP Technology, Windform SP shows increases in impact strength and elongation at break and retains its thermal properties and resistance to high temperature. It also features waterproof properties and therefore is resistant to absorption of liquids and moisture.
