Hexcel will exhibit at the Wind Turbine Blade Manufacture show in Dusseldorf, Germany, on 10-12 December, promoting two technologies for wind blade manufacturers that address the growing need for reduced production times and increased throughput.
HexPly Surface Finishing Prepreg provides a ready-to-paint blade surface without using an in-mould coat. The benefits include no procurement of gelcoat, elimination of the coating process (with savings in logistics, storage, equipment), lower labour costs, and faster production. The production cycle is considerably reduced.
Polyspeed Pultruded Carbon Laminates were developed for load-carrying elements in a blade structure and are manufactured with a polyurethane matrix that provides outstanding mechanical performance in terms of stiffness and durability. The blade manufacturing process is optimised, with increased throughput. The pultruded laminates are supplied in coils as continuous cross section profiles.
