Polyurethane Wind Turbine Systems

Onshore & offshore wind turbines, or wind energy, is one of the fastest-growing energy technologies in the country. It takes a short amount of time to build a wind farm and requires a small footprint. Whitefield Plastics manufactures high-performance polyurethane products for offshore wind and wind turbine energy applications.

Advances in polymer chemistry have resulted in polyurethanes that have operating ranges of 300F (150C).  These high temperature/high pressure polyurethane materials and elastomers can be used in a wide range of operating environments and performance requirements.

Common Polyurethane Wind Turbine Parts 

  • Bearing Pads
  • PU Micro Rotor Blades
  • PU lining for ship cradles
  • High Performance PU Seals
  • VBRs 

Benefits to using Polyurethane on Wind Turbine Systems

  • Cost-Efficient
  • High fatigue resistance
  • Better mechanical performance
  • Weather Resistant
  • UV Resistant

Since 1961, Whitefield Plastics has been leading the way in the design and expansion of cast-able polyurethane molding.  Over time, our advanced facility and master technicians have allowed us to cultivate a reputation as one of the foremost polyurethane manufacturers for onshore wind energy.
