The hottest PPG said at the wind energy exhibition

  • Detail

PPG said at the wind energy exhibition that it would enter the Asian wind energy market

at present, only a few manufacturers in the world can provide glass fiber and coating products at the same time, and PPG industry company is one of the leaders. At the 6th Asian Wind Energy Conference and international wind energy equipment exhibition Wind Power Asia 2009 held at China International Exhibition Center (CIEC) in Beijing from July 8 to 10, PPG showed its latest glass fiber reinforced materials, blade coatings, tower coatings and services developed for the wind energy market

PPG advanced glass fiber and coating technology can improve the working efficiency, performance and service life of key wind power generation components. PPG wind energy team relies on comprehensive professional technical knowledge and global business resources to provide customers with in-depth and comprehensive technology and services, including supply chain management, high-performance materials, mechanical equipment, production process management and chemical management, to help customers improve production efficiency

ppg blade coating can prolong the service life of fan blades and improve their performance at the same time. For example, the latest generation of aue-80000 blade coating launched by PPG has excellent durability, high toughness, corrosion resistance, sand corrosion resistance, rain corrosion resistance and low temperature performance, which can effectively protect the blades from erosion. This technology can improve the service life of blades, help manufacturers manufacture more durable blades and calmly cope with the test of severe wind fields. At present, the color matching process of aue-80000 products has begun in China, thus shortening the supply cycle to Asian fan manufacturers

PPG has long been committed to the development of "green" coating technology. This container is called "WIVA infinite container", such as water-based paint, powder coating, low volatile organic compounds (VOC) and high solid formula. The new sigma shield coating for tower and metal parts has the characteristics of high solids and low VOC, conforms to global environmental standards such as ISO 12944 and NORSOK m – 501, and has excellent impact resistance and wear resistance. The tower and metal parts can be submerged in water 30 minutes after construction, so the coating is particularly suitable for offshore applications. The product can also meet various strict construction requirements and can be widely used in oil and gas, power plants, infrastructure and other fields

ppg glass fiber provides a variety of glass fibers for the global fan blade market. Among them, the newly developed Hybon 2026 glass fiber is produced in the United States and Sinoma Pompeii Jinjing Glass Fiber Co., Ltd. (a joint venture between PPG and Sinoma Jinjing Glass Fiber Co., Ltd.) located in Zibo, China. This product is specially designed for the broad new energy market, and its performance far exceeds the requirements of current fan blade manufacturers. It is compatible with epoxy resin, vinyl ester, polyester and other resins, and can achieve maximum adhesion

cheryl Richards, market manager of PPG global wind energy team, said: "Hybon 2026 glass fiber is at least 20% higher in tensile strength than wind glass fiber products on the market at present, and it is several times more durable in the fatigue resistance of archive materials of outsourced equipment and instruments. It has become a" Carnival "for the domestic plastic industry to show the cutting-edge technology and industrial development direction. This is specially designed for large blades and offshore fans, and its performance far exceeds the current design requirements of fan blades. "

Ms. Richards added that PPG was working hard to improve its manufacturing capacity in China and provide high-performance glass fiber and coating products to customers in the local wind energy market. She said, "in 2008, China has become the second largest wind power market in the world. We have seen that the market is pursuing larger wind turbines as performance components, which undoubtedly requires suppliers to provide high-performance materials. We are just able to provide suitable technology to support this development trend."

PPG invests more than US $300million annually in product research and development, a large part of which is used to develop related products in wind energy and other renewable energy markets
