Windform® XT 2.0 is the evolution of the ground breaking high performance Windform® XT, the carbon fiber reinforced composite material, known for its mechanical properties, which made it particularly suitable in demanding applications such as motorsport sector, aerospace and UAV’s.
Windform® XT 2.0 is an innovative material, and will replace the Windform® XT, as the "Top Level" of the current Windform® range. Windform® XT 2.0 improves mechanical properties compared to "traditional" Windform® XT, while maintaining the same workability for LaserSintering machines in order to better fulfill the needs of Additive Manufacturing required to produce end use parts and prototypes.
Windform® XT 2.0 retains the matte black colour of the previous version and features improvements in mechanical properties: +8% in tensile strength, +22% in tensile modulus and +46% increase in elongation at break. Windform XT® 2.0 allows for the creation of accurate, reliable and durable prototypes and is perfect for functional applications.
Windform® XT 2.0 is the high-tech material for Additive Manufacturing chosen by those working in the Motorsport, Automotive (suitable for example for components under the hood, such as intake manifolds and functional cooling ducts), Air (for components UAV, Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) Aerospace (useful also to create prototype satellite, such as the CubeSat) and Design, as it allows applications that are fully functional, as well as bench testing, or testing and racing on the track.
