Sika Corp., a supplier of adhesive and sealant solutions, has launched a product to help with the repair of wind turbine blades.

The SikaForce7818 L7 MixCan kit has been developed specifically for on-location wind blade repair applications. The kit contains pre-measured amounts of the two component adhesives needed in blade repair, and the end user adds the two components and mixes in the can.

The pre-measured amounts of both components give the user accurate mix ratio control for proper product performance. The structural adhesive, which displays properties conducive to sanding and finishing, is used for deeper surface repairs on wind blades, Sika notes.
