By 2050, wind power could account for 25-30% of global electricity supply. Sika provides the right adhesive for bonding highly stressed wind turbine blades. Sikadur® WTG-1280 LD for example is a tough, high-strength, solvent-free, thixotropic epoxy adhesive. It is used for structurally bonding highly stressed components in the assembly of wind turbine blades.
The new building technology “Mesh Mould” was awarded with the Swiss Technology Award in the “Inventors” category. It was developed by scientists from ETH Zurich in collaboration with Sika experts, and allows the production of concrete elements of any shape without using concrete frameworks.The new Mesh Mould technology, supported by Sika, is a step further towards a more sustainable and digital future in the construction business.
