This is the Chinese version of the video “Protection from Wind and Weather — Intelligent Coatings for Rotor Blades of Wind Turbines”. In spectacular pictures it shows the development and testing of innovative coatings that BASF sells under its new RELEST® product brand. Pictures produced by a special high-speed camera visualize processes that are otherwise invisible to the human eye. Insights into real-life rotor-blade manufacturing and short expert interviews complement the presentation. For more information, please visit: www.windenergy.basf.com As the world`s leading chemical company, we believe strongly in the emotional appeal of film as a way of making innovations and solutions come alive before the viewer`s eyes. Of course, as a journalist you can`t be everywhere, but we can help bring you a little closer to our world. More on our TV-Service at www.tvservice.basf.com
