7 Laminated sheets protect blades against leading edge erosion
Material developer IER Fujikura now offers for wind-turbine blades, a highly abrasion-resistant rubber sheet with a layer of woven fabric for high durability. The material has been working for three years on a 1.5 MW wind turbine and recent inspection shows no wear on the blades. Installation requires no adhesive or edge sealant, and the turbine can return to service immediately after the application.
