Wind Energy Industry Coatings

It is essential to protect wind energy environments, such as wind turbines, against erosion and corrosion due to harsh environmental conditions faced daily. Naturally wind turbines require wind and the harshest environmental conditions help generate the most energy.  Wind turbine non-slip coatings protect exposed components against constant wind, heat, UV rays, rain, and ice and provide traction solutions for added safety.

Why Use Anti-Skid Coating for Wind Energy Applications?

SafTrax’s line of wind energy industry anti-skid coating provide proven protection against abrasion, corrosion, wear, erosion, and impact in challenging offshore and onshore environments. Coatings extend the operational lifespan of wind turbine installations and provide a protective layer for vital equipment and components, such as power systems, electronic control systems, sensors, and more.

Not only does our anti-slip coating enhance the operating life of wind energy structures and equipment, but they also provide slip prevention on wind turbines, including safe ascent and descent.

SafTrax’s durable coatings are frequently applied to wind turbine installations, including towers, foundations, blades, and other components and equipment used in the wind energy industry.

Benefits of SafTrax Coating for Wind Energy Industry Applications

Reduce injuries and drastically increase traction and safety with SafTrax’s wind turbine anti-slip coatings. With a coefficient of friction of 1:1, these coatings offer superior traction and grip in hard-to-get-to places such as the top of a wind turbine and ladders that require secure footing.

Wind turbines are constantly in a state of motion and exposed to harsh environmental conditions that require structural and material preservation. Using tubular cores filled with ceramic powders of aluminum, silicone, or iron, SafTrax products are 45 percent lighter than traditional non-skid coatings and provide superior protection and performance with less weight. Designed to perform in the harshest environmental conditions, these coatings withstand flexing and resist peeling to provide excellent corrosion protection for the underlying material article.

Easy to apply and fast drying, our wind energy industry anti-skid coating requires zero maintenance and has an average lifespan of one decade, which makes them a durable and economical non-skid solution.

Anti-Skid Coating Characteristics

SafTrax wind energy industry anti-skid coating products can quickly make your work environment safer because they are ready to use and do not require preparation, time, and regular maintenance. They will adhere to practically any substrate and form a superior bond that resists delamination. Coating your wind turbine or wind energy application with SafTrax products is simple. Use a twin-wire arc process spray to apply the coating, which requires no mixing or curing.  

The SafTrax line of anti-slip coatings includes TH335, TH604, and TH605, which are Americans with Disabilities Act-compliant and exceed Occupational Safety and Health Administration non-skid requirements. TH604 is a tubular or cored aluminum wire filled with up to 46 percent of aluminum oxide (Al2O3) powder, whereas TH605 is tubular or cored wire filled with up to 46 percent of silicon carbide (SiC) powder. TH335 is a tubular or cored wire comprised of iron and packed with aluminum and carbon powders.

Protect wind turbines and increase safety in the wind energy industry with SafTrax non-slip coatings. Our team is available to help identify the best SafTrax coating for your application.
