  • Epoxy Resins for Wind Energy Composites

    For rotor blade components, proven performance is essential. Since 1978, when the first fiber-reinforced rotor blades were being developed, Hexion has been working closely with blade manufacturers to achieve innovative engineering solutions backed by global, industry-leading technical support and infrastructure. With our own GL-approved laboratories, we continue driving wind-energy’s success.


    Our GL-certified products exhibit outstanding fatigue performance and enable efficient production with reduced repair and shorter cycle times, for a lower total cost and a lifetime of exemplary end-product performance. We are a one-stop shop for leading expert assistance and resin systems for all types of blade applications, including infusion, hand lamination, bonding paste, and tooling.

    • Resin Infusion —Partnership in process design and value engineering to make you more competitive; deep understanding of resin flow and cure rates, temperature control, shifting of laid fiber, wrinkling, and voids resulting high scrap rates; new low viscosity, low exothermic systems for infusing carbon fiber; hydrophobic systems for decreasing water content and improving processing and laminate quality
    • Bonding Paste —Most comprehensive understanding of bonding technology and strongest track record in the industry; new lightweight, rapid cure bonding paste with typically four times the fatigue resistance of industry standard products 
    • Hand Lay-up —Longstanding, GL and OEM-approved systems with simplified processing and desirable performance characteristics
    • Binders, Repair, Tooling and other products —Portfolio facilitating efficient production extends from prototyping through molding, production and repair
