The pace of global development in the wind industry generates ongoing rationalization in production techniques and new logistics solutions. The goal to deliver the lowest operating costs for utilities and independent power producers drives both constant innovation in wind technology and the standardization of components and equipment.
Consequently, firm management of the global supply chain is essential to meet the highest product quality and performance. The complexity of the industry’s supply chain in terms of technology, geography and timely delivery requires professional partners that understand these unique challenges and can provide the right solutions.

PPG’s PSX range meets both the commercial and protection demands of the growing wind energy sector by providing unique, user-friendly coatings with proven long-term durability in service. Our patented PSX 700 polysiloxane is featured in the external coating system and offers a major improvement in durability and aesthetics for aggressive exposure conditions.
The SIGMASHIELD 880 coating is engineered and formulated to resist corrosion in a wide range of industries and applications. As it can be rapidly immersed and continues to cure after seawater immersion, it is ideally suited for structures exposed to tidal movement and surges, and for offshore splash zones, such as those encountered in offshore power projects.
The growing trend to develop significantly larger wind farms much further offshore brings new challenges to protect the splash zones and foundations of wind turbines in hostile, deep-sea environments. The SIGMASHIELD 1200 coating meets this demand and by providing resilient long-term protection to offshore installations.
