Gurit reports that it will be showcasing its materials for wind energy, composite tooling and lightweighting applications such as aerospace, rail, healthcare and marine at JEC World.

Gurit’s products for wind turbine blades include its Kerdyn Green and Balsaflex core materials, while Spabond 840 is a certified, toughened adhesive designed for bonding large structures such as wind turbine blades and Renuvo is a range of UV curing lamination materials developed by Gurit for the repair of wind turbine blades and other industrial applications. 

The company says that it also offers molds, different types of hinge arms suitable for various mold shapes and sizes to safely and precisely close the two halves of a mold to produce blades.

Gurit says that it has begun a collaboration with Bcomp, a Swiss high-tech start-up which produces lightweighting materials based on natural fibers. Gurit is now Bcomp’s official distributor for the marine industry and now sells its fibers in combination with Gurit’s accredited bio-based resin solutions.
