Protecting the Turbines's Heart
Protecting the wind turbine nacelle from extreme climatic conditions is key to ensure turbine longevity.
Sika offers solutions to seal and bond nacelle covers and elements as well as a range of smart coatings to protect generator parts from corrosion and mechanical damage.
Our turbines are protected from harsh weather conditions using a
specially formulated smart coating, adding years to the turbine’s
longevity. Our nacelle covers and related components are protected using
our advanced chemical solutions which bond, seal, and protect.
Weather Resistant Sealing
Thanks to their proven durability, adhesion and elasticity,Sikaflex® and Sikasil® sealants ensure excellent resistance toweathering and long-term protection against damage causedby water infiltration.
Fast Setting Element Bonding
Elements such as cable fixings and noise insulation materialcan be rapidly and durably bonded within the nacelle.
Corrosion and Mechanical Protection
The Sika® Permacor® paint systems meet the highest standardsof corrosion protection and are suitable for offshoreapplications. Thanks to the very high mechanical durability,the components such as hubs, base frames, machine housingsetc. are already protected during transport and especiallyduring construction.
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 and plugs. Sika products provide a number of benefits including fast production and simple alterations.
Production of Moulds
Sika has a wide range of epoxy resins and gelcoats suitable for the production of composite moulds. Resins and gel coats are available with a large span of thermal performance to suit customers production processes.
Biresin® composite resins provide an extensive range of epoxy based systems for use in fibre reinforced composite applications. Our standard product range covers almost all aspects and processes for parts manufacturing. Sika also develops customised systems for specialised applications.
