Wind Energy

Wind Production Farms are the fastest growing energy segment in North America. Because wind generators are often placed in remote and/or barely accessible locations, friction longevity plays a critical role in lowering the cost and frequency or periodic and emergency maintenance.

ProTec branded friction materials are deployed throughout Europe and North America by global; wind turbine manufacturers. Top quality materials and a perfected bonding process assures reliable performance in even the harshest environments. Our yaw brake pads provide a high static coefficient of friction with significant compressive strength and superior resistance to extreme conditions. We also have a line of torque limiter brake friction to control and load manage wind turbine blades.
