SAERTEX PRESENTS NEW HIGH-STRENGTH GLASS UD FABRIC FOR WIND-TURBINE ROTOR BLADES

At JEC WORLD 2018 in Paris, SAERTEX is presenting a newly-developed glass-fiber reinforcement material that will be used for the production of wind-turbine rotor blades. The unidirectional high-strength fabric achieves tensile strengths that are up to 20% higher. In addition, the process of laying-up the fabric in the component without wrinkles is significantly improved, thereby shortening the lay-up time.

A WORLD FIRST: SMART DEFECT CONTROL FOR MULTIAXIAL CARBON FABRICS IN THE HIGH-END SECTOR

At JEC WORLD 2018 in Paris, SAERTEX is launching a unique process innovation for its multiaxial high-end carbon-fiber fabric: SAERTEX® Smart Defect Control for improving the quality of SAERTEX carbon-fiber materials.
