Covestro Presented New Material Solutions at the JEC World 2018

March 19 2018

At the JEC World 2018, Covestro presented lightweight, rigid, and aesthetic materials and efficient processes for their production. Covestro has developed a completely new composite technology for the efficient production of particularly thin, lightweight, high-strength yet aesthetic parts. It is based on continuous fiber-reinforced thermoplastic composites (CFRTP) made of polycarbonate.

Covestro has developed a special polyurethane infusion resin for rotor blades. In combination with reinforcing glass fibers and an efficient vacuum manufacturing process, it enables shorter cycle times and thus cost advantages. The resin developed in China has been awarded DNV-GL certification - a prerequisite for entering the Chinese wind power industry.

In China, a new prototype of a rotor blade with a blade length of 59.5 meters has now been produced. Due to its outstanding fire protection and good mechanical properties, FISCO composite solutions use the Desmocomp material from Covestro as matrix material for the GFRP core. Waterborne polyurethane dispersions from the Baybond line are used as film formers in glass and carbon fiber sizings for thermoplastic composite materials.
