ASA.TEC fiber in rotor blades and foundations for wind farms

The future lies in alternative energy carriers and wind farm facilities. The development trend is moving towards ever-bigger rotor blades and erection of wind power facilities offshore. This demands the use of new and innovative technologies. The materials now used for rotor blades are rapidly reaching their limits there.

The urgent need is a high-performance fiber at an attractive price. The ASA.TEC fiber is outstandingly well suited for rotor blade applications, because of its high strength and significantly high rigidity. In addition, the ASA.TEC fiber offers the advantage of not being an electrical conductor and as a natural, mineral fiber it is friendly to the environment.
