Adhesives for Wind Power Manufacturing
Epoxy Resin and Polyurethane Adhesives for Wind Turbine Manufacturers
Epoxy Resin is the material of choice when bonding fiberglass/epoxy laminate materials, such as those used in the manufacture of wind turbine blades. Epic Resins manufactures a plethora of adhesives for wind turbine systems that give the end user flexibility in pot life or open time of the adhesive, MMD equipment friendly ratios, and fillers, as well as a myriad of cure schedules to fit your production needs. As always, if we do not have exactly what you are looking for, talk to one of our technical salespeople to begin the process of having an adhesive formulated specifically for you.
Manufacturing High-Strength Bonding Adhesives for Windmill Blades
Epic Resins supplies structural and bonding adhesives capable of adhering to primed metals and epoxy/fiberglass laminate types commonly found in the manufacturing of windmill blades. These powerful adhesives do not slump or sag, creating durable bonds capable of outliving some substrates! Our polymer formulators are also capable of producing custom adhesive chemistries to work perfectly with the environmental stresses and application techniques used in your turbine blade building process.

Adhesives for the Wind Industry:
Epic S7068 - 2 Component Primerless Adhesive
Epic S7068 is a two component high strength, primerless, structural adhesive designed for bonding FRP to itself or primed metals. Epic S7068 adheres extremely well to most SMC formulations with little or no surface preparation. Epic S7068 also offers the flexibility of mix ratios and good peel strength and does not sag in a 3/8 inch bead.
Epic S7480 - Epoxy Resin Adhesive
Epic S7480 is a strong, 2:1 by volume epoxy resin for adhering fiberglass/epoxy laminate to itself. It is especially useful in the manufacture of wind turbine blades. Epic S7480 is a paste that will not slump or sag and is color coded for easy identification of proper mix. ASTM D3163 testing has shown that the substrate (epoxy/fiberglass laminate) will fail before the S7480 adhesive.
