Baydur®: Reinventing the wheel
We are helping wind-farm operators to catch up to the cost-efficiency of conventional energies and better exploit the power of the wind for the benefit of society as a whole – with innovative materials such as the new polyurethane systems from the Baydur® product family.The Baydur® product family has been optimized for the production of wind-turbine rotor blades using vacuum- infusion technology. Compared with conventional epoxy resins, infusion-resin systems made with polyurethane feature very fast flow and fast curing properties. This shortens the production-cycle times required for wind- turbine rotor blades. In addition to faster production, components fabricated with polyurethane have improved mechanical properties, especially improved fatigue properties – meaning the systems run smoothly for years and could be designed for higher output.
