AmeriCore-LD is perfectly suited to meet the most demanding requirements of the wind-turbine industry and can give blade manufacturers a competitive advantage by reducing build time while increasing the quality of the blades. AmeriCore is comprised of 100% composite materials, has minimal resin demand, and chemically bonds with the laminate, forming a single component that makes delamination a nonissue. With its low weight and high shear strength and stiffness, AmeriCore is perfect for creating lighter and stronger blades which can extend the life of the turbine by reducing the stresses on the turbine components.
Fiber Shield is a sprayable barrier coat that drastically improves the cosmetics and lifespan of wind blades. Fiber Shield can be used to reduce the eliminate “print-through” of glass reinforcements and cores and create a smooth mirror-like finish
on surfaces that is free of porosity – which may help the aerodynamic properties of the blades by reducing drag. Effective in both infused and hand-laid laminates, Fiber Shield greatly reduces or eliminates the need for gel coat rework after a blade is removed from the mold. In addition to greatly improving the surface quality of products, Fiber Shield also greatly extends the life of molds by protecting against laminate heat and shrinkage.
