Hempel, a provider of protective coatings, says its wind turbine coating system - dubbed the Ultra-High Solids and Speed system (UHSS) - has been awarded a patent from the European Patent Office.

The UHSS uses two high-solids coatings to reduce volatile organic compounds emissions, Hempel says, adding that the new coating dries in just 3.5 hours. The UHSS complies with C5-M and C4 categories for corrosive environments and is available globally.
