Adhesive Bonding Solutions for Blade Manufacturers
Experienced in providing realiable bonding solutions.
Sika adhesives have been used to successfully bond thousands of wind turbine blades. Our products offer high strength and crack resistance, ideal.
In blade manufacturing many internal and external elements require a wide range of different bonding properties such as open time, cure speed and other relevant mechanical properties.
Structural Assemble of Blade Shells
SikaForce® and SikaPower® structural adhesives have been used to successfully bond thousands of wind turbine blades. These products offer high strength and crack resistance, ideal rheology, fast curing yet long open time. Sika can also offer tailored products to meet specific requirements in terms of mechanical properties or workability features.
SikaForce® products provide a range of solutions for finishing blades that have the unique ability to flow and fill gaps without leaving air bubbles.
In blade manufacturing many internal and external elements require a wide range of different bonding properties such as open time, cure speed and other relevant mechanical properties. Our standard adhesive range includes products for bonding
lightning protection, balancing blocks, vortex generators, winglets and many more.
Auxiliary Part Bonding
Rapid fixing and bonding of auxiliary parts and add-ons onto the blade surface using 2-component structural acrylate and epoxy adhesives.
Plug and Mold Manufacturing
Sika offers innovative systems for the construction of models and molds.
Biresin® model pastes based on epoxy or polyurethane resins, and SikaBlock® model and tooling boards, offer a wide range of solutions for the cost effective fabrication of perfect quality models.
