Partnering the wind power sector 26 March 2014

NOF METAL COATINGS GROUP says that after establishing itself as a leading automotive supplier of anti-corrosion protection for metallic parts – based on zinc flake chemical compounds in aqueous phase – it is also now concentrating on the wind power sector.

With a reputation of high performing coatings and quality service, NOF METAL COATINGS already has technologies approved by leading wind power companies including: Vestas, Gamesa, Alstom Wind, Acciona, Clipper Windpower and Vergnet.

With the DACROMET® and GEOMET® range of coatings, as well as the topcoats PLUS® (widely used in the automotive industry), NOF METAL COATINGS says that it can provide a long term solution for the specific technical requirements of the wind energy sector. NOF METAL COATINGS’ global licensees network is capable of meeting the coating needs on metallic parts of the wind power sector in terms of application processes (dip-spin and spray process on frame or rack) as well as production volumes. Also, due to the low thickness of the coatings and their anti-corrosion protection mechanisms, the performance and reliability necessary in very aggressive wet and saline environments is guaranteed.

“The common goal of all participants in the global wind market – OEMs, suppliers, distributors or bolt makers – is to respond to the customers’ needs and to meet their requirements. Thanks to our global network and international dimension, we are seen as a key partner who can offer the necessary support to all participants in the wind power industry.”
