Erosion can reduce energy production by over 5%, amounting to $10,000+ in lost revenue per turbine annually.*
Wind blades with severe damage can cost up to $30,000 to repair.
*Calculations based on 3 MW turbine, 30% capacity factor, $30/MWh.
A sprayable, high-tack, and fast-drying synthetic elastomer based adhesive. Achieve consistent application with our red spray color.
Get the most out of your wind blades by improving the energy-production performance of the entire turbine. With 3M Vortex Generators, airflow separation is reduced, helping avoid aerodynamic stall, which can have significant negative impact turbine performance.
A fast and economical way to improve the aerodynamic efficiency of a variety of existing blade and turbine types. Our field-proven design has a proven track record of performance improvement, and protection against weathering and harsh environments.
Used for permanent bonding and sealing applications. Acrylic adhesive chemistry offers long-term outdoor durability against heat and UV.
Helps protect blade surfaces from power-robbing damaged caused by minor impacts, rain, sleet, sand, dirt, or other debris. Excellent UV resistance for long-term reliability.
Helps OEMs protect wind turbine blade leading edges from damaged caused by sand and rain erosion, and minor impacts.
