Hexcel’s HexPly carbon fibre UD prepregs have been certified by Germanischer Lloyd for use in wind energy applications.

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. Customers will have access to the data that can be used for design purposes for proven performance.

Wind blade manufacturers are increasingly turning to carbon fibre composites for their superior mechanical properties, high strength and modulus at lower weight than alternative technologies, particularly for larger blades.
