Dow Epoxy Systems, a unit of the epoxy business with the Dow Chemical Co., has introduced AIRSTONE Systems for Wind Energy, which is a family of products designed for use in the fabrication of wind blades.

AIRSTONE Systems for Wind Energy are based on proven epoxy chemistry and technologies that make wind blades stronger, lighter and easier to produce, according to Dow. 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.
