ITW Plexus, the European structural adhesives manufacturer, is once again exhibiting at JEC Composites in Paris and this year the company will be sharing its stand with its newly formed wind energy group, known as ITW WindGroup
Plexus will be highlighting the benefits and savings that major transportation, marine, automotive and engineered construction manufacturers are achieving by using the company's latest high performance range of methacrylate adhesives to bond many dissimilar materials. These adhesives are facilitating faster and easier assembly, and produce durable high-strength bonds to virtually all resins and gel coats, as well as most thermoplastics and metals.

These products provide the wind industry with solutions for blade assembly, maintenance & repair, tower manufacturing & assembly, and nacelle & hub assembly. The Group has strategic management teams located in North & South America, Europe, and Asia and each team, along with their distribution partners, can provide local support anywhere in the world.
During the show the WindGroup will be demonstrating a range of products which provide value to the production process of blades and other composite structures of the wind turbine and related field maintenance & operations. This range consists of tacky tapes, structural adhesives & sealants, blade cleaners, leading edge protection tapes & coatings and Teflon release films.
