In order to protect wind turbine blades from rain erosion, German BASF Corporation (BASF) has launched an advanced coating system solution RELEST®Wind LEP S.
Recently, the coating system passed the rain erosion test of a well-known Danish inspection agency, and its performance exceeded Similar products currently on the market.
In the current operation of high-power wind turbines, the blade load stress is very large, especially the blade tip speed can reach 300km/h, the force is huge, and climatic factors (such as rain, snow, hail, wind and sand, thermal radiation) , UV radiation, etc.
) erosion of the blade surface, which will lead to an increase in the frequency of maintenance.
To this end, BASF's coatings business unit has launched a long-term protection solution for the coating system.
This product series does not contain solvents and is a two-component polyurethane system that meets the requirements of the current VOC regulations.
This coating system specially designed for wind turbine blades has excellent protection performance, and is environmentally friendly and efficient.
The test results show that under the test conditions with an impact speed of up to 160m/s, rain will not cause substantial damage to the coating, so it has excellent resistance to rain erosion.
In addition, the coating system has good durability and UV resistance Strong.
This coating system is especially suitable for OEM products, which can directly coat the blades to achieve excellent protection effects, thereby improving the operating efficiency of wind turbines and reducing maintenance costs.
Due to the thin film thickness and easy construction of the system, it is an ideal choice for owners.
In addition, BASF can also provide supporting products under the RELEST brand series to boost the development of the wind energy industry.
The products of BASF's coatings business unit include automotive coatings, automotive refinish coatings, industrial coatings and decorative paints.
It currently has production bases in Europe, North America, South America and the Asia-Pacific region, and maintains close cooperation with customers through a network all over the world.
In 2015, global sales of this business unit reached approximately 3.
2 billion euros.
