3A Composites and Dow team up on core materials for wind blades

The cooperation brings together Dow’s expertise in materials science with 3A Composites’ know-how in the field of core materials for wind turbine blades.

Dow produces COMPAXX™ structural foam core materials for use in wind turbine blades (see Dow introduces COMPAXX wind blade core material), as well as resins and adhesives. 3A Composites supplies the AIREX® polymer foam core materials and BALTEK® balsa wood core materials (see Redesigning the core materials landscape.)

The perfect combination of the two companies’ different and complementary core competences builds the foundation for a successful cooperation and will allow us to offer the market an unrivalled package of cutting-edge material and service offering.
Roman Thomassin, CEO, 3A Composites Core Materials 

Through this cooperation with Dow, 3A Composites will offer customised core material solutions globally with local service, based on Dow’s technologies.
