CRP Technology, an Italy-based leader in SLS (selective laser sintering) 3D printing since 1996, has launched the world’s first UL94-V0 (2 and 3 mm), carbon fibre reinforced 3D printing material. Windform FR1, part of the company’s TOP-LINE composite family, has also passed FAR 25.853 12 second vertical and 15 second horizontal burn tests, the 45° Bunsen burner test and smoke density test. It can thus be used for 3D printing parts for aircraft applications (cockpit, cabin, air conditioning piping, air ducts and outlet valves) as well as for automotive, electronics and consumer goods. Use of PIN flame retardants ensures that it passes smoke density tests. The flame retardant and carbon fibre reinforced composite material after printing offers high strength and stiffness, as well as light weight, and enables printing of components with high surface resolution.
