More Hexcel Prepregs Approved for Wind Blade Construction

08 March 2011

Two more HexPly carbon fibre UD prepregs, HexPly M9.6G and M19G, have now been certified by Germanischer Lloyd for use in wind energy applications.

HexPly M9G is Hexcel's established standard cure product and HexPly M19G is an innovative system that cures in 15-20% less time. Hexcel say that both prepregs are suitable for shells, spars and the root end.

The Germanischer Lloyd Statement of Approval for Hexcel's prepreg means that wind blade manufacturers and design companies can select certified carbon fibre/epoxy materials that have been approved for blade construction following rigorous testing and data analysis.
