Windform® LX 3.0 is a composite polyamide based material which is reinforced with a new generation glass fiber system.

Windform® LX 3.0 has improved the already excellent performance of Windform® LX 2.0. These improvements can be noticed from a sinterability standpoint.
Windform® LX 3.0 maintains the Windform® LX 2.0's technical and thermal properties; it is also not electrically conductive.

It is a naturally black material and is characterized by good Tensile Strength and stiffness.
Windform® LX 3.0 is also characterized by high level of temperature resistance (HDT, 1.82 Mpa is 175,9°C / 348.62 °F).

Windform® LX 3.0 has an excellent surface finish in its sintered state; it is perfect for components with fine details. Windform® LX 3.0 is highly recommended for applications that require a strong visual impact and for aesthetical parts.

Windform® LX 3.0 is an entry-level material and is perfect for creating functional prototypes or finished parts that require reliability, resistance and aesthetical properties.
