Gurit has developed SPRINT IPT, an all-in-one,?in-mould surfacing solution for wind turbine blade production.
The technology aims to reduce manufacturing time. Many manufacturers of composite components currently adopt prepreg technology to produce composite blades and Gurit supplies epoxy prepreg and gelcoat products to produce these parts. SPRINT IPT is a multi-layer product, supplied on a roll, comprising of a SPRINT triax material and new surfacing film. When cured the film provides a tough and abradable surface that can be painted directly onto thus reducing production time, costs and increasing product quality.
