Gurit (Zurich, Switzerland) has launched RENUVO, a new wind turbine blade repair system that cures in minutes under UV light and is designed to address operations and maintenance issues of the growing blade repair market. The RENUVO system comprises a prepreg solution that eliminates the mixing and curing wet lamination resins found in traditional repair materials. The prepreg and its multi-purpose system resin are rapidly and safely curable using the dedicated RENUVO Lamp Technology equipment that is part of the system. This is designed to allow repairs to be conducted faster and in a more controlled way than before, and practically all year round as long as the ambient temperature is warmer than 5°C/41F. Gurit also has launched a new high-performance adhesive, Spabond 340LV, designed for bonding large wind turbine blades.
