Title: WIND TURBINE BLADE INCLUDING PROTECTIVE COVER
Abstract:
A wind turbine blade (2) including a protective cover (1) attached along the blade by a layer (16) of adhesive. The adhesive is a general purpose adhesive, such as a two component epoxy adhesive, having thixotropic and UV resistant properties, and the adhesive forms a joint (21, 22) or sealing between an outer edge (30) of the cover section of the blade and the surface of the blade so that the outer edge is covered by the adhesive and so that the joint forms an oblique surface from the outer edge to the surface of the blade. The joint has a first height (h1) at the outer edge and a second height (h2) at the position where it ends at the surface of the blade. The second height is smaller than the first height and smaller than 0.2 millimetres, and the joint is integrally formed with the layer of adhesive.
