windform gf 2.0

3D printed dragon toy prototype. Material: Windform GF 2.0
3D printed dragon toy prototype - material: Windform® GF 2.0

Windform® GF 2.0 is a composite material with a polyamide base, which is filled with glass and aluminium. These updated properties present improvements upon the previous Windform® GF formula with increases in thermal, mechanical and aesthetic properties.

Windform® GF 2.0 shows a significant improvement in the HDT (almost +8%), as well as increases in tensile strength and elongation strength, offering greater ductility than the previous version. This is useful for various racing applications and applications subject to vibrations.

Windform® GF 2.0 also has excellent mechanical properties per unit of density, thanks to its lighter weight.

Windform® GF 2.0 is a light grey color, with a radiant metallic sheen, which is appreciated in many design and wind tunnel applications.

Improvements in detail reproduction make Windform® GF 2.0 suitable for applications which require accurate and superior surface definition, such as for proof of concept parts, or for mock castings.
