From being a R&D laboratory to becoming an industrial supplier, now we are an enthusiast partner to the wind turbine manufacturing industry.
In about 15 years, since we started, we have put all or commitment to research, develop, and optimize innovative foam materials to offer to the wind turbine industry a solution beyond the state of the art for performance, cost and environmental impact.
Our competence and focus led us to develop Atlas F, our structural foam widely used for NACELLE applications thanks to its distinctive flexibility and light weight; then we introduced Atlas HPE, our core material increasingly adopted in BLADES by leading wind turbine manufacturers for its toughness and low resin consumption. The Atlasfoam portfolio has recently been expanded by the last result of our R&D department through the launch of Atlas HT, developed for HIGH PROCESSING TEMPERATURES, confirming our vocation to R&D and aimed to always meet our customers specific requirements.
– ALL OUR PRODUCTS ARE DNVGL CERTIFIED AND ALREADY IN USED BY MANY OF THE TOP 10S OF THE WIND INDUSTRY
– AN R&D DEPARTMENT WORKING HAND IN HAND WITH OUR CUSTOMERS WITH THE AIM TO SOLVE THEIR SPECIFIC TECHNICAL REQUIREMENTS
– WIDE SCOPE OF SUPPLY, FOR DENSITY, THICKNESS, SURFACE FINISHING, AND KIT DESIGN, OPTIMIZATION AND PRODUCTION
– STRONG CUSTOMER APPROACH TO PROVIDE LOGISTIC SERVICE FOR DESTINATION, LEAD TIME, SPECIAL DELIVERY NEEDS
Differently to other rigid structural foams, Atlasfoam is not a standard, basic material used indifferently in the wind industry among others. Instead, Atlasfoam had been developed on purpose for the wind blades and nacelles, having full understanding of the application specs and process requirements. Its chemical nature has been balanced to reach the maximum result in terms of:
High strain energy and high fatigue resistance translate into a dual opportunity, the ease of design challenging blade configurations, and the durability of the product with less risk of failure
Atlasfoam is almost isotropic in the 3 dimensions and there are no welding, with special concerns to shear property, it doesn’t change with direction of the panel thus supporting technical design and dimensioning with realistic, objective data, not just TDS info, and allowing an ease in manufacturing since there are not preferred directions for the sheets.
The finer and more regular the foam cellular structure, the more the resin saved, which can help in restraining the final weight after infusion, and reducing manufacturing cost. For Atlasfoam, resin saving has been proved by internal and independent data.
Atlasfoam is the first and sole foam to be granted with an EPD in the context of panels or sheets in composite system, for structural application, which includes certified data useful for wind turbine LCA
ATLAS HPE, the high impact and fatigue resistance structural core specially designed for efficient resin saving in composites wind BLADE manufacturing
ATLAS HT, the HPE grade optimized for fast reacting infusion
ATLAS F, the rigid structural foam material, characterized by high flexibility, and specially designed for efficient resin saving in composites NACELLE covers of wind turbines
