Windsourcing.com has been chosen by Sika Germany as exclusive distribution partner for SikaCor SW- 1000 RepaCor, a new solution for the repair of corrosion damage to on- and offshore wind turbines. As a result of the "RepaKorr" joint research project, Sika Germany developed SikaCor SW-1000 RepaCor. The solvent-free two-component coating dries four hours faster than conventional systems.
The practical packaging in the form of mixing cartridges makes the product easier to process, so that industrial climbers only have to carry a low weight during their repair work. During the "RepaKORR" research project, funded by the German Ministry for Education and Research, the material, technical and organizational bases for an "on-site repair" concept were developed. The focus of this project was on a high-performance coating material modified to meet the key requirements of the project, with Sika Germany GmbH in charge of its development as the research partner with sole responsibility. Intensive development work resulted in the new product, SikaCor SW-1000 RepaCor, which combines all of the properties of long-lasting corrosion protection, particularly in the case of repair measures. Windsourcing.com was selected by Sika as its exclusive supply partner for the new product in the aftersales service market for the wind industry in Europe.
