3D printed steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters - material Windform® LX 2.0

Windform® LX 2.0 is a composite polyamide based material which is reinforced with a new generation glass fiber system. The properties of Windform® LX 2.0 make it particularly suited for functional applications, as well as finished complex parts.

Windform® LX 2.0 is a naturally black material which can be polished to a glossy finish, and is characterized by improved Ultimate Tensile Strength (UTS), electrically insulative properties (CTI Rating of 600), and increased stiffness.

Windform® LX 2.0 is perfect for creating functional prototypes or finished parts that require functionality, resistance to high temperatures, and a captivating matte black color.
