Durable edge protection for extreme performance. Exposed to environmental elements, high speeds, and harsh conditions, the leading edges of wind turbine blades can suffer damage that compromises the blades' performance. Poor blade performance reduces energy production and in-use repair downtime is costly. Based on the same technology used in the aerospace industry to protect helicopter blades and more, SWM has the ability to provide advanced leading edge protection to maintain turbine efficiency, reduce downtime and maintenance, and extend the useful life of blades – even in the harshest environments.
When installed on the leading edge of wind turbine blades, SWM durable, strong thermoplastic polyurethane surface protection film is a dependable option to repair or prevent costly damage caused by minor impacts and erosion. Designed for extreme performance, ArgoGuard® leading edge protection film is used in self-adhesive products that can be installed either by blade manufacturers or on-site in the field.
