Gurit has launched SparPreg featuring Airstream Technology, during Wind Power 2012, Atlanta, US, 3rd June – 6th June 2012.
According to Gurit, SparPreg featuring Airstream coating technology is a specialised prepreg developed to enable the economic manufacture of high quality UD spar caps using advanced glass and carbon fibres. They say Airstream products address the fundamental problem of creating a very high quality, low void content laminate without the use of expensive automated equipment or a temperature controlled environment. With fast deposition rates and no requirement for intermediate de-bulking steps, glass and carbon prepreg technology is now readily accessible for all wind turbine blade manufacturers.
Gurit explains the main benefits include:
Damian Bannister, Director Innovation Products and Solutions at Gurit comments,“Airstream coating technology further reduces the barriers for using high performance prepreg as a component manufacturing technology and enables our customers to design new advanced blades with confidence that the required manufacturing solutions are available.”
