Wind energy products, like wind turbines, will benefit through nonwoven composites formulated with Expancel. Since our microspheres reduce the need for resin even at small additions, this saves costs on raw materials and increases the quality of the wind turbine.

Stable wind turbines without added weight

Expancel Microspheres provides an improvement in compressibility and elasticity which improves the dimensional stability. In addition, our microspheres are extremely low in density - which makes it possible to add bulk without adding weight.

Application techniques also vary as our microspheres can be used in binder systems applied on the substrate either by impregnation, coating, spraying or lamination.
