Gurit’s (Zurich, Switzerland) new, trademarked RENUVO wind blade repair system is designed to address many of the practical issues that have prevented more effective and expedient maintenance programs. The system reportedly provides the option to create a wider weather window for repair, with a working temperature range starting at 5°C/41°F, and it is designed to reduce structural repair time by 50 percent. Its low-odor, zero-VOC (styrene- and amine-free), UV-curable resin systems prevents these problems. Summer and winter grades of RENUVO MPS (Multi-Purpose System) and RENUVO PP (Prepreg) are available to cope with most conditions, making the system compatible with prepreg, epoxy infusion and polyester infusion molding methods. The repair system includes RENUVO Lamp Technology (available in “spot” lamp format and in a high-intensity configuration) that enables technicians to expose laminate patches to UV light and cure the matrix in minutes, without the need for a postcure. Gurit says Germanischer Lloyd (GL) certification is pending.
