3D printed Automotive intake manifold functional prototype  - material Windform SP
3D printed Automotive intake manifold functional prototype - material Windform® SP

Windform® SP is a carbon fiber reinforced composite polyamide material characterized by a dark black color.

Windform® SP has excellent mechanical properties similar to Windform® XT 2.0, with the addition of increased resistance to shock, vibrations, and deformation. The material also shows increases in impact strength and elongation at break, as well as excellent thermal properties and resistance to high temperatures.

Windform® SP is a material with optimal mechanical properties per density units.

Windform® SP has waterproof properties, and is resistant to absorption of liquids and moisture.
