Solvent-free coating to protect wind turbines

Wednesday, 31 October 2012

With a six-hour drying time, the new protective coating dries two hours faster than its predecessor, the manufacturer says.

Hempel has launched a solvent-free version of its protective coating for offshore wind turbine foundations. The new coating has been developed with a focus on improving efficiency and on helping wind turbine manufacturers reduce solvent emissions.

Six-hour drying time

Developed specifically for splash zone protection of offshore steel structures, "Hempadur Multi-Strength 3546”0 is the new, fast-drying version of the "45753” product line. With a six-hour drying time, it dries two hours faster than its predecessor, Hempel says. Anders Voldsgaard Clausen, Group Wind Power Segment Manager, believes this can have a major impact on a wind turbine manufacturer’s productivity.

Faster production, higher efficiency

"It depends on the production set-up, but a six-hour drying time makes it possible for most factories to coat a foundation twice within the same shift,” says Clausen. "This means faster production, higher efficiency and ultimately lower costs for the manufacturer.” Since the product is solvent-free, manufacturers will be able to meet strict guidelines on solvents, Hempel says.
