Composite materials manufacturer Gurit has developed SPRINT IPT, an all-in-one, in-mould surfacing solution for wind turbine blade production. The technology aims to reduce manufacturing time significantly, making prepreg blade production a cost-effective process route.

SPRINT IPT is a multi-layer product, supplied on a roll and made up of a SPRINT triax material and new high-performance surfacing film. When cured, the film provides a tough and abradable surface that can be painted, thus reducing production time and costs and increasing product quality.
