Wind Energy Thermal Spray Coatings
Wind energy has been recognized as a green energy source for decades in Denmark. In the past 10 years or so this trend has gotten world recognition, more specifically in the US. With the federal government offering incentives this sector has grown significantly with many manufacturing plants being built or commissioned. A proper wind farm requires a significant amount of real estate so more and more of these farms are being looked at locating in saltwater bays. When inland these towering windmills at a minimum require that the flange to flange connection areas be metalized to keep them from bleeding rust. However, when placed in bays that will cycle wet and dry saltwater combined with salt laden air corrosion rates are much higher. Liquid coatings on their own will not last. Metalizing is used both as a standalone coating as well as an insurance policy under liquid coatings to assure it protection against corrosion.
