Wind Energy

Since the beginning of the wind industry and throughout its growth and development, PPG Fiber Glass has been an integral part of wind turbines. The properties of fiberglass makes it an ideal composite to be used in wind energy. The strength-to-weight ratio allows for strength, but not at the cost of smaller blades. Fiberglass also provides a high tensile strength, helping manufacturers to achieve larger blades and higher energy output. Because of its corrosion resistance properties, fiberglass has helped to grow the wind industry, allowing for wind turbines in the toughest environments, including offshore wind farms worldwide.

Applications:

  • Wind blades
  • Nacelles

PPG Industries is also a supplier of tower and blade coatings to the wind power market. To learn more about how we can help you deliver more efficient and more economical solutions for generating power from the wind, visit PPG Wind Energy.
