Corrosion protection for onshore wind turbines
With the new high-performance surface protection films, RENOLIT, the renowned manufacturer of industrial plastic films and WP Energy (part of the WP Group), a supplier of inspection, repair and maintenance work, are setting new standards together in the wind energy industry.
The surface protection films are not only more effective and cost-efficient but also more sustainable. As a result, RENOLIT CP offers better performance and lower operational cost.

First Pilot Project Started: Practical Test of New Corrosion Protection Film from RENOLIT and WP
The first pilot project of the two companies RENOLIT and WP Energy has started at a wind farm near to the German city of Cologne. About 33 square meters of RENOLIT CP - the new corrosion protection film for onshore wind turbines - were applied to the towers of each of the two turbines.
The film is the first product of a new portfolio which RENOLIT has developed and is now being marketed in cooperation with WP Energy (a part of the WP Group).Get a sample
ISO 12944-9 CX certification
RENOLIT CP is certified according to ISO 12944-9 CX (Protection duration: high) and offers long-term corrosion protection of up to 10 years.
Free of VOC
RENOLIT CP is free of VOC (volatile organic compound) and is thus significantly more environmentally friendly than conventional corrosion protection paint coatings.
The film is UV resistant (ISO 4892-2).
The thickness of the film is 160 microns; together with the adhesive ≥ 230 microns.
The film is manufactured in standard RAL 7035 colour (light grey). Other colors can be supplied upon request.
Service & application temperature
The film is suitable for ambient temperatures of between -30 and 70 °C.
The ambient temperature when applying the film should be between 10 and 35 °C.
