They include systems for infusion, hand wet layup, tooling and adhesives. Multiple product grades allow customers to tailor their final products based on specific market conditions.

"Trusted supply is critical for manufacturers as they strive to meet explosive global demand, and that's exactly what Dow offers the industry," says Jean Luc Guillaume, global market manager for wind energy solutions with Dow Epoxy Systems.

Dow produces AIRSTONE Systems for Wind Energy at full-scale production facilities in Germany and the U.S., and ships to customers around the world.
