Wind Power

Materia Wind Power MarketWind energy is a thriving industry with newly installed global capacity growing at rates near 25% per annum over the past several years – yet only 2% of electricity worldwide comes from wind power today.

As independent blade builders and integrated turbine providers seek to manufacture larger, lighter and more durable blades, they have turned from polyester-glass to epoxy-carbon/glass hybrids. Proxima resin represents the next advance in wind blade composite technology, delivering dramatically greater toughness, lower weight and a smaller carbon footprint at a lower cost than epoxy systems.

Materia will play a major role in making clean power more widely available, participating in a resin market that is projected to grow to $1 billion in 2014.
