World’s first certified additive for wind power plants

BYK offers an additive with Germanischer Lloyd certification: BYK-C 8001. This means manufacturers of wind turbines can use the polymer coupling agent without further testing in their glass fiber reinforced epoxy resin systems. The BYK additive enhances the mechanical properties by up to 60 percent, since the coupling agent BYK-C 8001 is a copolymer with reactive / surface active groups that optimizes the mechanical strength and the longevity of the fiber reinforced resins in the rotor blades. Results of fatigue tests directly indicate longer blade life. Another special feature is that it is deployable “irrespective of age” with every epoxy-compatible glass fiber fabric – while maintaining consistently high quality in the finished component.
