Dörken MKS-Systeme GmbH, Herdecke, Germany and parent company of Dörken Corp. USA located here has developed a new coating system certified by Germanischer Lloyd for use in wind energy plants. The coatings, designated basecoat Delta-Tone and topcoat Delta-Seal are used for fasteners such as bolts used for securing rotor blades.

With more than 15 years experience in the field and with the approval of numerous leading wind energy manufacturers worldwide, Germanischer Lloyd, a renowned European accreditation firm, has now granted the system structure of basecoat Delta-Tone and topcoat Delta-Seal certification for use on standard bolts for wind energy plants in the onshore and offshore fields. The fasteners coated with this system, in particular those in the dimension range M24 to M48, have already been successfully employed in other applications for many years.
