At 300 km/h a raindrop becomes a bullet -- powers which the rotor blade of a wind turbine has to withstand for 20 years. BASF developed the coatings of wind turbines and their rotor blades to make wind energy more efficient. Wind power: an important contribution to environmental protection and sustainability.

This film focuses on the development and testing of innovative coatings sold under the BASF product brand RELEST ®. Pictures produced by a special high-speed camera visualize processes that are otherwise invisible to the human eye. In addition, you get insights into the manufacturing of rotor blades and short interviews with experts on wind energy and wind turbines. Learn about the importance of modern chemistry to protect the wind turbines from wind and weather and to make wind energy economical for many years. Only a long-lasting wind turbine can deliver energy cost-effectively.
