Sika Corporation, premiere supplier of innovative, sealing, bonding, reinforcement, and protection solutions is proud to announce its participation as an exhibitor at the AWEA WINDPOWER Conference and Exhibition, May 23-26, 2016 at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center, New Orleans, Louisiana.

 

Sika will present its full range of sealants and structural adhesive solutions for wind turbines - from the tip of the blades to the base of the foundation - including the unique SikaForce®-7800 Red & Blue two-component polyurethane structural repair adhesives and SikaDur® Blade Repair Kits. 

 

In addition, Sika will present Sikaflex® polyurethane sealants and adhesives, Sikasil® silicones; and SikaFast® two-component MMA structural adhesives.  Sika’s wind turbine solutions offer the wind industry rapid, reliable, and the most cost efficient solutions for manufacturing, installation, and repair applications.  

 

“The wind industry is a very dynamic and challenging environment.  The utility companies are demanding OEMs produce more durable, lower cost units, that generate greater energy output,” said Tony Martin, Vice President, Transportation and Appliance & Components, Sika Industry. 

 

“In addition, the wind repair market is the fastest growing segment in the renewable energy industry.  The sealants and adhesives required to properly repair the wind blades and turbines are not the products you buy off the retail shelves.  It is important that Sika educates and provides the best repair solutions that expedite getting the turbine units back on line. Sika has serviced the wind energy industry globally for over 25 years with high-performing products and solutions to meet our customers’ challenging applications. Sika is committed to bringing new technologies to the renewable energy industry.’’
